CCYD - Lifting Young Lives, Helping at-risk youth succeed

Founded in 1974, The Chesapeake Center for Youth Development addresses the educational and developmental needs of local at-risk youth experiencing barriers to success due to educational deficits, troubled family relationships, juvenile delinquency, and limited employment opportunities. To help encourage young people to set realistic goals for themselves and help in reaching those goals, The Chesapeake Center for Youth Development provides innovative high quality and comprehensive services through our at-risk youth programs and partnership with other organizations.


Defining Success:

Success is defined by enrollment, attendance, program participation, academic achievement, HS Diplomas & GED attainment, acquiring developmental assets, obtaining employment credentials and entering the workforce, a decrease in delinquent activity when applicable, improved social skills and ability to function in mainstream society.
