ICCYD believes, “communities have knowledge, skills, and practices that are effective and valuable…we just have to unleash their potential.”

What is the Innovation Center for Community and Youth Development?

The Innovation Center for Community and Youth Development  “unleashes the potential of youth, adults, organizations, and communities to engage together in creating a just and equitable society.”

What is an example of an ICCYD project?

ICCYD worked with 12 local activist organizations to study how young people benefit from becoming activists, and “learned that young people involved in social change organizations built strong relationships with adults, learned how to be organizers and leaders, and became more involved in their communities.”

What resources do they provide?

ICCYD has a ton of resources for the four main-leadership stages:

1. Getting Ready!  It’s all about networking: build relationships with partners in the community. 

2. Plan!  Create a vision and plan for where you want to go. 

3. Implement!  Take action to make your community stronger. 

4. Sustain! Focus on reflection, improvement, and be sure to maintain connections so your work will last.
