San Diego Youth Development Office (YDO)

YDO is devoted to making Youth a priority. We do this by promoting and supporting more efficient, effective relationships among multiple layers including:

* children, youth, and families
* direct service providers (especially small, independent community-based organizations that are not embedded in systems)
* the systems that fund and manage programs
* funders
* businesses
* policy makers

Our Mission

Supporting positive youth development strategies that improve outcomes by connecting, convening and engaging stakeholders and their resources to advance the health, education, and economic wellbeing of San Diego’s Youth.
