The UCLA Community Based Learning Program had been a unit of the Center for the Advancement of Teaching since 1988.  As of 2022, the Program has moved to a new home, the Center for Community Engagement, with a new name, Community Youth Programs (CYP). However, the mission of the program remains the same, which is to assist youth, both teenagers and young adults, with the transition from youth to adulthood, utilizing the many resources of the University to assist. This includes encouraging youth to move from secondary to post-secondary education and on to meaningful careers and productive adult lives.  Initially CYP had one grant from the City of Los Angeles; CYP still has the present-day iteration of that grant but has grown considerably to include a number of other funding sources. The program works exclusively with youth and young adults and has two main areas of service: youth workforce development and after school programs.
