The National Youth Development Council (NYDC) has been devoted to the holistic development of youth, particularly in urban areas, for over two decades. NYDC is an original grassroots organization composed of multi-cultural collaborations.

NYDC's focus is on youth development through Leadership, Education, the Arts, Athleticism and Mentoring. Administrators and parents are the driving force behind the NYDC's planning, development and implementation of year-round outreach programs, activities and events.

Our mentoring approach helps to instill the building blocks in youth for a lifetime of engagement and fellowship.

We encourage each participant to become a "young ambassador of goodwill and to pledge service to humanity."
