Welcome to MYDC

It is our pleasure to present to you Manchester Youth Development Center, an organization that has served children and families from the Manchester and other North Side communities for over 47 years.

MYDC has evolved from a safe haven for youth in the 1960’s to a wrap around educational support center for children, from preschool through high school years.

MYDC is a unique organization. Since its founding, the Center’s sole purpose has been to assist parents and caregivers with the total development of their children. Further, MYDC attempts to assist each child in realizing his or her potential in an atmosphere that considers individual needs. Along with creating a place that is safe for children, MYDC provides a vehicle for parents to dialogue with teachers and other parents about relevant aspects of their children’s total development.

We are proud of the achievements of our staff and our children, including an extraordinary 98% high school graduation rate and less than 1% teenage birth rate. We are pleased with our impact on the Manchester Academic Charter School (MACS), reflected in its status as Pittsburgh’s only 2008 Blue Ribbon awarded by the U.S. Department of Education and its superb performance on state mandated AYP standards.

We continue to be grateful for the contributions in dollars and in time from our board and staff, our donors, and the wider community, including the on going support from our local and state government officials. We welcome you to visit us and help to contribute to our success.
