Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD)

We’ve added a new category for Youth Services provided by DYCD to NYCityMap.  It contains the locations of 5 different programs available from DYCD:

Fatherhood Initiative: The fatherhood programs help non-custodial fathers reconnect with their children and develop essential parenting skills.

Literacy Program: DYCD supports reading, writing, high school equivalency exam (GED) prep and English language classes for youth and adults.

Out-of-School Youth Program: DYCD’s Out-of-School Youth (OSY) program is for 16-21 year-old young adults who are not connected to school or work, or who need assistance upgrading their occupational skills. Funded through the Workforce Investment Act, these programs offer occupational skills training, assistance with job and college placement, GED preparation, and a wide range of supportive services designed to increase young adults’ success in the workplace and in their personal lives. Participants receive 12 months of follow-up services after completing the program. OSY programs are located in community-based organizations in all five boroughs of New York City, and offer a range of occupational training in many industries, including construction, food service, tourism, healthcare, and retail.

Runaway and Homeless Youth Center: The Runaway and Homeless Youth program offers Crisis Shelters for Runaway and Homeless Youth that offer emergency shelter and are the entry-point for residential services in the Runaway and Homeless Youth system. The program also offers Drop-In Centers that provide young people and their families with services, counseling, and referrals from trained youth workers.

Summer Youth Employment Program: The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is a seven-week summer employment initiative open to young people between the ages of 14 and 24. Participants work up to 25 hours a week while earning $7.25 per hour in assignments that include government agencies, hospitals, summer camps, nonprofits, small businesses, law firms, museums, and sports and retail organizations.

Young Adult Internship Program: The Young Adult Internship Program (YAIP) is a 14-week internship program for low-income New York City young adults aged 16-24 who are not working and not in school. YAIP is composed of a 2- to 4-week orientation conducted by selected community-based organizations followed by 10- to 12- week paid internships that offer structured work opportunities. This year-round program, serving approximately 1,360 youth per year, incorporates ongoing education, as well as other participant and employer supports. Upon completion of the internship, the organizations will provide nine months of follow-up services and help place the participants in permanent jobs, training programs, or educational settings.
