Today, more than ever, youth find themselves being called to illicit and corrupt actions, pressure to go along with immoral behavior and media and advertising attacks on their self-esteem. Often, they feel estranged from family and religion. The Institute for Youth Development and Excellence (IYDE) is bringing decades of youth services experience to address this growing population. IYDE develops programs in tangent with the youth being served, to counter these many negative influences, and restore a proper balance to the youth.
