Why become a member of CAYR?

Support the publication of the Journal of Applied Youth Studies (JAYS): As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, membership fees are the foundation for the development of CAYR and the ongoing publication of  JAYS.

Stay up to date: We will keep our members up-to-date on the latest developments in the youth services sector, policies and best practice through our planned communications; ongoing website updates; online news-feed; regular events; and research, experience and reflection papers.

Support youth services sector development: professional development resources and hosting of public events.
