Youth Development Center
Located in Houston’s Fifth Ward, Youth Development Center (YDC) provides after-school programs focused on academic intervention for elementary students. The new facility, which almost doubles the number of students the center is able to serve, features a secure recreational facility, kitchen facilities for preparing hot meals, improved restroom facilities, a larger common space, private areas for counseling and a library. These new facilities will not only improve services to the after-school programs, but will also open up additional services to adult literacy, parenting and health classes during the school day. LTY provided MEP design services for this project.
