ABOUT YDC

Everyone needs a blueprint, the right tools and resources to access pathways for perpetual success!

Vision

Our vision is to be a free standing, independent, unbeholden generator and sustainer of academic and skill trade success for students. That success will empower local, national and global innovations and freedom from institutional and systemic bondage that impact vulnerable and underrepresented populations.  

 

Mission

To bring good news to the humble and afflicted, to bind up the wounds of poverty, lack of education, lack of affordable housing, lack of financial equity, and lack of urban justice to brokenhearted youth and adults. To free high school dropouts, those aging out of foster care, veterans, returning citizens and prisoners through a holistic approach releasing youth and adults from confinement and condemnation.
