Welcome to CYC-Net

Whether you are a professional or a student in a modern First World city, or a careworker in a remote Third World countryside, access to this valuable collection of material is unrestricted. Our site is, and always has been, entirely free. It does of course cost money to keep CYC-Net running.

We rely entirely on voluntary subscriptions and donations, and we therefore invite fellow child and youth leaders/organizations, agencies, colleges, universities and individuals to share this responsibility with us - so that your staff/student body (and through them all of the kids) may derive the benefit.
Please help by "playing fair" and supporting CYC-Net, especially if your organisation actively prescribes the use of CYC-Net.

See this link below if your organisation is listed.
