"Creating Innovation, Building Evidence through Research,
Program Development & Training"

The Center for Positive Youth Development at Spurwink (CPYDS) supports programs and research that benefit at-risk youth throughout the state by focusing on the development of their “assets” or strengths. The Center provides ongoing program, research and training support to youth, parents, teachers and service providers, and provides a vehicle for all youth-serving organizations to work together with increased effectiveness and fidelity to the positive youth development approach. The CPYDS is the new home for the statewide Communities for Children and Youth Network.
