Potential is Universal. Opportunity is Not.

CYD is unique — our approach is long-term, multi-tiered, and personal. We make a fourteen-year promise to families; children join CYD in the second grade in small groups of 10-12 and remain part of that group until they graduate high school and begin college. 

We are proud of our success: 100% of students who complete CYD graduate high school. This graduation rate far exceeds local, statewide and national rates. We are also grateful for all our students who have continued to excel:  

  • 95% began a post-secondary degree
  • 75% are enrolled or have earned their post-secondary degree 
  • 35% of alums who earned their bachelor's degree, earned their master's degree!

Be a CYD Holiday Hero!

Every year we provide gifts to nearly 75 young people. This year, we still need sponsors to cover 38 children, which is a total of $6,650. Sponsorship is $175 per child - sponsor one child or many! You just need to contribute $175 per child you wish to sponsor or you can email to request a child's wish list and you can do the shopping!
