The Youth Development Resource Center (YDRC) supports youth development providers in Detroit.
We work with hundreds of providers across Detroit – large and small with a range of program offerings — to strengthen their individual and collective impact on youth.
The YDRC focuses on empowering youth development providers that fill opportunity gaps in youth’s access to quality learning experiences — expanding the time, places, and ways in which youth learn and grow. Young people find and ignite their passions, get connected to caring adults, and are more likely to become lifelong learners with skills for success.
