Under current law, a neighborhood youth organization (NYO)
serves youth as young as 6 years of age and as old as 18 years of age. The
bill lowers the minimum age of a youth member to 5 years of age.
The bill permits an NYO to create an electronic or written process
to record the daily arrival and departure times of youth members in order

to track attendance, assess the impact of programs and services on youth
members, and ensure an NYO operates in the best interest and safety of
youth members.
The bill requires that an NYO's programs and services must occur
primarily in a facility the NYO leases or owns or has been granted use of
or access to.
The bill requires an NYO to offer programs and services that are
evidence- or research-based, age-appropriate, and foster supportive
relationships with peers and adults while offering character and
leadership development, academic supports, job skills training, behavioral
health supports, health and nutrition services, and other critical resources
and services that a community identifies as necessary. An NYO serves all
children, youth, and families, but with a focus on programs and services
that ensure affordable access for low-income populations.
