DYCD Barbershop         

Join us on Thursday, September 9, for this month’s DYCD Barbershop Talk. Our panel will discuss the reopening of schools, afterschool programs, vaccines, and more—live on the DYCD YouTube site. Before then, head over to our page to check out the recent two-part Barbershop on financial literacy. 

Time for Afterschool            

Suppose you need an afterschool program in your neighborhood, information on improving reading skills, or finding the nearest community center. In that case, DYCD funds a wide range of high-quality programs for the youth of all ages. Check out discoverDYCD, or call the Community Connect hotline at 1-800-246-4646 or 646-343-6800, Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, to find your local program.
Advance & Earn   

DYCD’s Advance & Earn is a training and employment program for youth between the ages of 16-24. If you or someone you know is starting to think about their long-term career and education goals, this may be the program for them. Advance & Earn will offer participants access to life-changing opportunities and maybe a first step toward a degree and their dream job.

Youth for Racial Justice   

We are excited for #YouthforRacialJustice Public Input Session this Friday! The city government plays a significant role in ensuring all New Yorkers live in thriving, healthy, safe communities – and a legal document called the #NYCCharter determines HOW government fulfills that role.

NYC Youth are invited to speak directly to the #NYCRacialJustice Commissioners about how the City's laws should change to reflect racial justice, equity, and fairness. #YourVoiceMatters, so join us and testify online on Sept. 10. Register now:

Youth Create the city YOU Want to thrive in!  

Are you a young person living in NYC? Do you have thoughts about how life is in the city? Do you want to share your experiences to help bring about policy change? The Intergenerational Change Initiative is a group of youth and adult researchers working collectively to use youth voices to bring change in NYC. Last year they launched the Youth Ask Youth Census, which got over 400 responses from young people sharing their experiences and hopes for the future in NYC. They shared this data with significant stakeholders such as the Department of Youth and Community Development, the Department of Education, and the Deputy Mayor’s office. This year, you have the chance to share your input AND get a $25 gift card just for participating. Visit the office Amplify App website today.
