EAST TN COUNCIL ON CHILDREN AND YOUTH

EAST TN COUNCIL ON CHILDREN AND YOUTH

TCCY's Vision. All children in Tennessee have the opportunity to achieve their fullest potential and are safe, healthy, nurtured and educated.

TCCY's Mission. The Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth (TCCY) is a state agency with a primary mission of advocacy for improving the quality of life for Tennessee children and families.

The policy-making body of TCCY is a 26-member commission whose members are appointed by the governor. At least one member is appointed from each of Tennessee's nine development districts. Five youth advisory members meet the federally mandated composition required for a Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act state advisory group.

TCCY works with state agencies, juvenile courts, child advocacy groups, interested citizens and other organizations to improve services to children. The commission members, central office staff and regional coordinators are engaged in the following activities:

  • Improving the coordination of services for children;
  • Collecting and disseminating statistical and programmatic information;
  • Informing citizens and organizations of children’s issues;
  • Tracking legislation and making recommendations to the Governor and Legislature;
  • Administering the Federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Juvenile Accountability Block Grant and other federal and state grant funds for juvenile justice programs.
  • Lindsey Cody is the East TN Regional Coordinator
