The three organizations-Ramapo Training, The Youth Development Institute (YDI), and The National School Climate Center (NSCC)--have a combined 150 years of experience supporting youth, families, educators, and communities.

Ramapo NYC combines Ramapo Training’s expertise in coaching and training adults in the skills and techniques that lead to supportive communities, NSCC’s national leadership in developing systemic capacity for school climate improvement, and YDI’s unique approach to developing and sustaining high quality, youth-centered programming and services.
