Youth and Community Development, Department of
The Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) supports youth and adults through 2,841 contracts with community-based organizations throughout New York City. These include 558 contracts that comprise the Citywide Out-of-School Time (OST) initiative. OST offers a balanced mix of academic support, sports/recreational activities, the arts and cultural experiences, which take place after school, on weekends, and during school vacations; 464 programs to help low-income individuals and families become more economically self-sufficient; and 36 adult literacy programs that teach English skills to assist participants to further their education or to advance their careers. The Department also administers a network of 80 Beacon community centers in public schools that serve youth, adults and families during out-of-school hours. Through a range of programs, DYCD contractors assist immigrants to become naturalized citizens. In addition, DYCD implements and oversees the City's youth workforce development program, providing summer employment and year round services to introduce youth and young adults to the job market and help them develop the skills to succeed. DYCD is also responsible for the City’s runaway and homeless youth programs.
