Our Mission

Headquartered in Minneapolis working with national, state, and local stakeholders in youth development, the National Center for Youth Development connects kids with their communities, from birth to adulthood. Whether you’re a musician, a cyclist, an engineer, or future politician, we will not only support you in your interest, but we’ll help you learn the life skills you'll need to thrive in the world. We bring extensive experience and professionalism to every person we work with and customize our support to your individual needs and concerns.

Our coaches have been working with youth for nearly two decades and have assisted countless families navigate the often overwhelming path of positive youth development. Our finger is directly on the pulse of evidence-based best practice, and we have monitored and studied the evolution of culture and science to inform our own approaches—all to give you exceptional support that will last a lifetime.
