Young Disciples Community Development Corporation

Vision


We engage in youth advocacy for our neighborhoods and work to provide opportunities to participate in community affairs. We have established relationships with other public and private community resources and have been leveraged into partnerships that provide services and support to address health, housing, employment, training and other human services needs of the West Ward Community.


Our Programs:


Youth Activity Night

Youth Retreat

Literacy Book Club

I Have A Voice


Life Skills Workshops- provides safe shelter with comprehensive programming to at-risk, disadvantaged, pregnant and / or parenting teens

Gang Prevention- Program goals are straight forward:  reduce gang violence and steer at-risk youth away from gang involvement. Teens are encouraged to continue their education, get jobs and become contributing members of the community.

Drug Prevention- The most cost effective and successful approach to dealing with youth and drugs is prevention. While many feel that scare tactics or enforcement are the best methods of preventing youth addiction, other methods are needed to communicate to the curious, recreational or experimental user of drugs.

Pregnancy Prevention- The main goal of these programs is to promote the postponement of initial sex and to discontinue voluntary sexual intercourse until marriage. 

School Choices (Charter Schools/College)- The School Fair will provide all prospective students, their parents and other interested parties with the opportunity to gather information on schools and to speak with representatives from these schools. Representatives will discuss and provide information on their schools as well as on admission requirements, academic standards and costs and financial aid.
