The Community Network for Youth Development Closed on April 30, 2013

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.
