National Center for Youth Law

The National Center for Youth Law (NCYL) creates lasting change for children in need. We are a non-profit organization that uses the law to ensure that low-income children have the resources, support, and opportunities they need for a fair start in life. We work to ensure that public agencies created to protect and care for children do so effectively.


NCYL does not:

  • provide legal representation to individuals (or represent individuals in court);
  • give legal advice on individual cases;
  • provide legal information for research projects or academic assignments, although it may be useful to use the site's Search tool.
