We need your support to ensure that lack of money will never prevent a teen from making a substance-free choice about how to spend their leisure time.
"CYD works! They provide positive activities designed by the kids themselves... so they're well-attended. This is an extremely worthy cause that delivers the goods. It is so much cheaper to set them on the right path when they're young. A contribution to CYD is the best money you'll ever spend."
-Shannon Staub former Sarasota County Commissioner
"CYD currently offers over 100 activities a year that provide positive and safe experiences for Sarasota County youth. We want to do more. It breaks my heart to have to turn kids away. Additional funding means additional staff to deliver more activities to more teens. We need your support. Please give what you can."
-Karen Bogues CYD Director
