Programs for students:
​Academic, social and emotional development

Our YCDI! professional facilitators are available to come to your school to work with your students

You Can Do It! Education is focused on developing the social, emotional, and motivational capacity of young people rather than on their problems and deficits. It encourages prevention, promotion, and intervention efforts (school, home and community) in order to build the social and emotional strengths of young people.

In addition to the social – emotional development programs that we have available for educators, our YCDI! Accredited facilitators are also available to come to your school to work with your students.
