Thank you for visiting the Board on Children, Youth, and Families website!

The Board on Children, Youth, and Families (BCYF) is a non-governmental, scientific body within the National Academies of Sci­ences, Engineering, and Medicine that convenes top experts from mul­tiple disciplines to analyze the best available evidence on critical issues facing children, youth, and families today. Our ability to evaluate research simultaneously from the perspectives of the biological, behavioral, health, and social sciences allows us to shed light on innovative and influential solu­tions to inform the nation. Our range of methods—from rapidly convened workshops to consensus reports and forums—allows us to respond with the timeliness and depth required to make the largest possible impact on the health and well being of children, youth, and their families throughout the entire life­cycle. BCYF reports provide independent analyses of the science and go through a rigorous external peer review process.
