Mission & Description
The mission of the Center for Youth Development (CYD) is to develop and implement systemic and supportive interventions for middle school and high school students. Through its New York State Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) grant, CYD offers services and activities during the academic year as well as during the summer for students in the Newburgh Enlarged City School District and the Enlarged City School District of Middletown. LPP's goal is to prepare students for successful transition into post-secondary education and the workforce through college and career readiness training, service learning opportunities and the development of interdisciplinary projects. Parents, CYD graduates and representatives from local businesses and community-based organizations work with LPP and serve as role models and mentors for LPP students.
