Established in 1976, New Directions For Youth (NDY) is a comprehensive youth development agency that provides direct services and programs to more than 3,000 at-risk youth and families annually. To date, NDY has provided critically needed services to more than 200,000 youth, the majority of whom come from very low-income families residing in under-served geographic areas including Van Nuys, Panorama City, North Hills, and the economic Enterprise Zone of Pacoima. Our approach is holistic: we recognize that our clients' needs are extremely complex and we have worked to develop an array of services, including both prevention and intervention programs, to meet these diverse needs.
