Apply for the Youth Development Practitioner Scholarship!

The DC Children and Youth Investment Trust Corporation (CYITC), in partnership with the University of the District of Columbia Community College (UDC-CC), is offering credit-bearing courses at the UDC-CC and a Youth Development Practitioner Scholarship to help out! The scholarship covers admission fees, tuition and books for the full certificate program based on program guidelines.

The courses at UDC-CC will eventually lead to an eighteen credit Certificate in General Education (Out-of-School-Time), which builds staff capacity in youth-serving organizations. These classes will be offered over the course of three semesters and were selected based on the necessary skills to help youth reach positive knowledge, attitude, and behavioral outcomes.

The program is perfect for professionals in a variety of youth-serving fields and organizations, such as community-based organizations, government agencies, faith-based groups, community recreation and correctional professions, coaches and counselors.

If you are interested in applying for the scholarship, check out CYITC's website and download and complete the application online. There are a limited number of scholarships available. Participants will be notified of their application status by Friday, July 20th.
