After 20 years of strong commitment to supporting and deepening the work of youth organizations, youth workers, and educators, the Community Network for Youth Development (CNYD) ceased operations on April 30, 2013.
We are grateful to the exceptionally talented CNYD team members that made our work possible and to the dedicated and committed practitioners and leaders we've been privileged to support. We are also appreciative of the many funders and partners who have made our work possible over the years.
Where You Can Find CNYD Resources

These resources include: The Youth Development Guide, An Introduction to Youth Development Training: Staff Facilitator's Guide, Making it Happen: Relationship Building Staff Training Module, Making it Happen: Youth Participation Staff Training Module, Making it Happen: Skill Building Staff Training Module.
