Successful Children and Youth Policy Team

First convened in May 2013, the Successful Children and Youth Policy Team (SCYPT) is comprised of leaders from multiple sectors within Fairfax County. The team’s role is to set community-wide goals and priorities for public policy as it relates to children, youth and families. According to the team’s charter, “in order to become confident individuals, effective contributors, successful learners and responsible citizens, all of Fairfax County’s children need to be safe, nurtured, healthy, achieving, active, included, respected and responsible. This can only be realized if the county, schools, community and families pull together to plan and deliver top-quality services, which overcome traditional boundaries.”

Membership on the team is divided equally among representatives from Fairfax County Government, Fairfax County Public Schools and the community. Two members from both the Board of Supervisors and the School Board participate. Community members are identified to provide the perspective of various sectors impacting youth well-being, including health care, nonprofit, faith and philanthropy.
