Investing in America’s Youth to Build a Better World

SDYDC believes in encouraging and inspiring vision in the life of every child, regardless of economic circumstance and has been providing programs to the youth of San Diego since 1996. Thousands of San Diego youth have been able to enjoy a multitude of outdoor activities and instructional activities that have been designed to prepare them for life.

Your donations are welcome, as they will enable the San Diego Youth Development Center (SDYDC) to expand its recreational, educational and spiritual programs for underprivileged children. Your generous donation can help reach today’s youth to impact tomorrow’s leaders.

Investing in a child’s life is a precious gift. By partnering with SDYDC we can make a difference and leave a lasting legacy. SDYDC is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization.

Some of our specific projects are detailed below. You may donate to a specific goal or the general fund. We also welcome donations in the form of goods and services, please contact us today if you would like to participate in any way!

Backpacks for Hope

We are raising funds to purchase 3000 backpacks full of school supplies to distribute to children in underprivileged communities. We will also be distributing groceries through our partnership with the food bank and hygiene kits as we connect with the families and educate them on the other programs available to the community. You can drop off kids sized backpacks that you purchase on your own to our offices, or contribute funds to purchase the amount needed.  We have made arrangements to purchase in bulk and can secure a backpack for as little as $4! No amount is too small, please consider helping today!

Classroom beautification

The classrooms that we use for the Kingdom Kids Sunday School program and many other programs are in need of refreshing! We are planning to repaint and replace the floors and build out more permanent decorations to make it a fun and welcoming environment for the kids. The project is budgeted at $5,000 in materials.

Get the Monkeys to the Zoo!

SDYDC is sponsors a group field trip to the World Famous San Diego Zoo free of charge to as many kids as want to go. Donations will cover food transportation, admission, supervision and activity charges for an unforgettable day for the kids!
