Mission Statement

The Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) was created in 1996 to provide the City of New York with high-quality youth and family programming. Our central task is administering available City, state, and federal funds to effective community-based organizations. Selected organizations must be in touch with the needs of the people they serve, devoted to the highest principles of community service, and committed to sound fiscal management.


DYCD funds a wide range of high-quality programs, including:

• The Out-of-School Time Initiative
• Runaway and Homeless Youth Outreach
• Youth Workforce Development
• Corporate Internships for Youth
• Adolescent and Family Literacy Programming
• Summer Youth Employment Program
• Beacon Community Centers

DYCD and its partners are translating big ideas into practical solutions. Every individual program plays a critical role in our larger plan to empower New Yorkers and enhance their communities.
