Applications are now open for the 2017 DYCD Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). Applications are due Friday, March 17, 2017. The application process was launched earlier this year to give New Yorkers additional time to plan for the summer.
On Saturday, January 28, 2017, Stacey Kourbanov (4th grade) and Shahrom Sayfullobekov (5th grade) represented CPC's Homecrest COMPASS @ PS153 at the 3rd Annual DYCD Chess Masters Tournament. Shahrom and Stacey joined over three hundred students from DYCD programs for the tournament.
In honor of the season for giving, NYC Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) hosted a “Young Poet’s Society” competition. The competition invited youth who are enrolled in a DYCD funded program to submit a poem around the theme of “family”.
