About Us

About Us
Founded in 1979, Concerned Citizens for Roslyn Youth, Inc. provides after school academic support, summer recreation, youth employment, referrals and advocacy services for financial, housing and legal counseling.
Approximately 20 years ago Concerned Citizens for Roslyn Youth, Inc. relocated to the Hector Gayle Roslyn Community Center, named after the then Executive Director of the Nassau County TNH Urban Renewal Project,  now owned and operated by the Town of North Hempstead.  The community center was designed as the result of a feasibility study conducted by Parish, Pine and Weinter on behalf of the Urban Renewal Project and with a tremendous amount of input from CCRY, Inc. It was forged out of a community vision.
For 40 years, CCRY, Inc. has provided comprehensive programs for the benefit of, but not limited to, the youth and families of the Roslyn Union Free School District.  
Our organization is supported by:
Roslyn School’s Community Service Students and Honor Society
The Town of Oyster Bay Workforce Partnership Youth Employment and Training
Nassau County Health and Human Services Office of Youth Services
Member Item Senator Elaine Phillips, 7th District of the New York Senate
Roslyn Public School District Clubs
Roslyn Public Schools Coordinating Council of Parent Associations (CCPA)

Board of Trustees

The board acts as trustee of the organization's assets and ensures that the nonprofit is well managed and remains fiscally sound. In doing so, the board must exercise proper oversight of the organization's operations and maintain the legal and ethical accountability of its staff and volunteers.

The main legal responsibilities of a nonprofit board are:

Duty of care: Board members are expected to actively participate in organizational planning and decision-making and to make sound and informed judgments.

Duty of loyalty: When acting on behalf of the organization, board members must put the interests of the nonprofit before any personal or professional concerns and avoid potential conflicts of interest.

Duty of obedience: Board members must ensure that the organization complies with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations, and that it remains committed to its established mission.

In addition to its legal responsibilities, the board acts in a fiduciary role by maintaining oversight of the nonprofit's finances. Board members must evaluate financial policies, approve annual budgets, and review periodic financial reports to ensure that the organization has the necessary resources to carry out its mission and remains accountable to its donors and the general public. The board must also ensure compliance with federal and state regulations.
