A legacy from a CYD donor keeps MCNDHS students warm all winter.
Comprehensive Youth Development partners with NYC public high schools to prepare young adults, ages 14- 24, to secure a successful future for themselves and their families. Through this partnership, our students develop the capability to graduate from high school and make informed decisions on higher education and careers.
Since 1995, Comprehensive Youth Development (formerly Comprehensive Development, Inc.) has worked with and for underserved youth ages 14-24, dismantling the barriers to high school graduation and paving the way to pursue further education or employment that can lattice into a successful career.
In partnership with three public high schools, Comprehensive Youth Development provides college and career exposure and preparation, financial aid and scholarship assistance, tutoring, test preparation, and connections to legal guidance, housing assistance, financial support and more, all free and personalized to each student’s specific needs. We currently serve nearly 3,500 students and alumni each year.
