Youth Development Institute


The Youth Development Institute (YDI) supports the growth and development of young people by strengthening the quality and increasing the availability of experiences offered by the organizations that serve them. They partner with community organizations, schools, colleges, policy makers, funders, and others to create programs, train staff, and develop policies that encourage and enable young people to transition successfully to adulthood. The Institute publishes materials and provides training to organizations seeking to embed the principles of positive youth development into routine operations and workplace culture.
