About

Community Youth Career Development Center (CYCDC) in partnership with Families First has successfully served the State by providing Youth Development and Parenting/Life Skills education. The services are delivered by two community organizations.  The Mississippi Community Education Center (MCEC) and the Family Resource Center of North Mississippi (FRC). MCEC and FRC have provided Families First for Mississippi services jointly for over 19 years. The program seeks to strengthen families of all backgrounds and life circumstances by providing youths ages 12-18 in youth development and parent education through seminars, workshops, classes, and presentations. The services are designed to stimulate employment through job readiness, support family financial stability, promote literacy, and increase graduation rates while continuing to support positive youth development, decreasing teen pregnancy rates, promoting positive father involvement, parenting education and parenting skills development. The services of CYCDC are offered through the guidance offices at Coahoma Community College, Coahoma Community Youth Outreach, Clarksdale High, Oakhurst Intermediate, J.W. Stampley, and W. A.
