Community Youth Development
The CYD Program serves youth up to the age of 17, with an emphasis on youth between the ages of 10-17. CYD eligible youth live in and/or attend school in the 79403 & 79404 zip codes. Mentoring, youth leadership development and the establishment of a Youth Advisory Committee are three mandatory service components that each local CYD program must provide. In addition, a vast array of services have been developed to meet specific community youth needs, including:
- academic support services,
- life skills and leadership development,
- character education,
- conflict resolution,
- programs that promote family support and involvement.
All CYD services are provided free of charge.
