Create Your Dreams is…
Create Your Dreams (CYD) is a long-term, youth development program dedicated to nurturing the talents and dreams of students living in underserved areas on the Westside of Atlanta. We provide the resources, opportunities and relationships children living below the poverty line require to reach their potential and break the cycle of generational poverty.
CYD provides our students with the support they need to break this cycle. The results of our program speak for themselves: 100% of students who complete our program graduate high school; 96% began a post-secondary degree program; and 88% who enrolled in a post-secondary education have either earned their degree or are still enrolled. Also, 40% of CYD college graduates who earned their bachelor’s degree continued on to earn their master’s degree!
CYD students produce and perform their original song "Chasing Dreams"!
