CCYD IS LIFTING YOUNG LIVES
Founded in 1974, CCYD’s mission addresses the educational and developmental needs of youth at risk of encountering problems due to educational deficits, troubled family relationships, inadequate health care, poor decision making and limited employment opportunities. With programs, services and partnerships with government agencies, other organizations and businesses throughout the Baltimore area, CCYD guides and encourages young people to set realistic goals for themselves and helps them realize those goals.
Success is defined by program participation, academic achievement, HS Diplomas & GED attainment, acquiring developmental assets, obtaining employment credentials and entering the workforce. When CCYD programs address young people caught up in a delinquent life style, the goal is to treat those youth in the community and avoid costly out-of-home or institutional placements.
