DYCD Launches discoverDYCD


Looking for an afterschool program in your neighborhood? Need information on literacy services or the nearest community center? The new discoverDYCD allows users to search for DYCD-funded providers by program type, borough, neighborhood or zip code, and provides contact information, lists of activities offered, and a mapping feature with navigation. Categories of services include COMPASS afterschool, Family Support, Immigrant Services, Jobs & Internships, Reading & Writing, Runaway & Homeless Youth, and Summer Programs. Advanced search features also allow users to narrow results through keywords.

We hope you find discoverDYCD useful as you take advantage of the diverse resources and opportunities that New York City has to offer.
