Changing lives through academics and life skills
For 23 years, AYD has used out-of-school-time programs to help boys and young men break a cycle of failure and despair. Starting in 2014, AYD began enrolling girls in our elementary and middle-school programs.
1 year in AYD’s after-school programs gets highly at-risk students back on track academically.
86% of AYD boys over the years stayed active in the program until graduation.
96% of AYD boys graduate high school.
92% of AYD alumni are employed, serve in the military or are full-time students.
88% of AYD alumni who are fathers report that they are "very active" in their children's lives.
