CYD is unique — our approach is long-term, multi-tiered, and personal. We make a fourteen-year promise to families. Students join CYD in the second grade in groups of 10-12 students and remain part of that same group until they graduate high school and begin college.
We are proud of our success: 100% of students who completed CYD graduated high school. This graduation rate far exceeds local, statewide and national rates. We are also proud of our students who have continued to excel:
Each CYD program contributes to the development of the whole child, giving them support and encouragement. We strive to:
CYD has five core programs students attend year-round, six days a week, along with two funds that together provide the vital wraparound services students living below the poverty line need to succeed and achieve their goal of a brighter future. All CYD programming is free of charge to students, and all activities include meals and transportation.
