CityKids
Young people involved with CityKids:
- Write and perform their own positive message music, dance and dramatic material.
- Get their voices heard through youth-driven interactive workshops, grassroots community programs, television appearances, videotapes, books and more.
CityKids differentiaties itself from other youth service organizations in five substantive ways:
- Our programs are youth-driven. Youth help to design, operate and evaluate each program.
- Our programs are youth-relevant. Involving youth in the decision-making process allows them to identify the content that will keep them engaged in meaningful ways.
- Our programs are evidence-based. Designing youth-driven programs requires extensive field testing and continuous improvement to guarantee success.
- Our programs employ multi-dimensional perspectives of social justice, arts and culture, community organizing, social and emotional development, and workforce development, among others.
- Our programs are effective. Internal program evaluations demonstrate CityKids youth improve their educational outcomes, reduce behavioral issues, address emotional and family issues with help from support services, and reach their personal, short-term goals for school and work.
CityKids uses the arts to engage and train young people to create positive and powerful solutions to issues impacting their lives. Young people learn to improve their own educational status, become agents for social change, take action in community projects, and carry positive messages to their peers, and they have a great time doing it!
About Us
We believe if you bring young people together from different racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds and challenge them to develop their own solutions, they will respond with energy, imagination, commitment and action.
In 1985, cultural activist Laurie Meadoff founded CityKids as a non-profit, multicultural youth organization located in New York City. She began by working with a group of 10 young people from across the City.  Since then, the CityKids Foundation has grownt to service over 650 youth directly in CityKids programs every year, led by CityKids staff and senior youth participants. CityKids performances, workshops, and mass media productions touch the lives of an additional 75,000 young people annually.
Our Mission & Vision are accomplished through employing basic but powerful principles:
- Safe Space
- Youth-to-Youth Communication
- Multicultural Bridge Building
- Leadership Development
CityKids Programs
CityKids programs bring to life the focus on "our voices, our issues, our words."
CityKids vehicles for communicating these issues include leadership training workshops and courses, original live musical and theatrical performances, community improvement projects, community-based workshops, leadership conferences and youth-directed and facilitated dialogue sessions. All CityKids programs are youth-driven – created for youth by youth – to ensure they reflect the real needs, ideas, and visions of youth.
In 2007, more than 600 youth participated directly in CityKids programs, and CityKids performances, workshops, and community improvement projects touched the lives of tens of thousands of additional young people.
