Our Vision


YDTRC’s vision is of capable young people supported and recognized for unique contributions in their neighborhoods, schools and communities through partnerships with adult resources.

Our History

YDTRC was founded in the spirit of collaboration. In 1993, Citywide Youth Coalition, a network of youth-serving organizations in New Haven, and The Consultation Center, a training and consultation agency affiliated with Yale Medical School’s Division of Prevention and Community Research, joined forces to create an agency committed to serving the people and agencies dedicated to youth work. YDTRC has since become a leader in promoting youth development, training youth workers, advocating for a developmental approach to adolescence, and fostering youth-adult partnerships in Connecticut.
