Welcome Message

The Bridgeport Caribe Youth Leaders’ (BCYL) objective has remained the same since the inception of the organization in 2003.  The more than 200 strong BCYL volunteers, board of directors, funders and stakeholders strive in providing the BCYL youth and their families the environment, resources and inspiration to ensure a great learning experience and help us live up to our motto of                           

 Building Today's Youth …Tomorrow's Leaders.

BCYL affectionately known as Caribe operates on 3 platforms Sports, Education and Community and provides enriching programs to over 600 youth ages 5 to 18 enabling them to prosper into leaders. This is evident by youth led activities and programs such as the Caribe Youth Health Explorers, Gambling Awareness Youth Leadership Council, Caribe Day and Park Cleanups.  BCYL youth are consistently demonstrating their greatness when the proper environment, resources and opportunities are provided to them.

I encourage you to browse the website and check out how BCYL can help you achieve your goals!
