Formed in 1999, Detroit Youth Foundation (DYF) is dedicated to enhancing the lives of youth and furthering positive youth development in Detroit. DYF furthers youth development by providing grants, programming and support for young people and youth serving organizations. DYF encourages positive youth development through collaborative partnerships and funding strategies that help create a healthy community environment. DYF employs grantmaking, technical assistance, networking and community capacity-building as methods of change. DYF has undertaken a major new initiative, Youthville Detroit, to develop a comprehensive multi-service facility designed to promote positive development among youth of all ages, with emphasis on 11 to 19 year-olds. The 75,000 facility will be located within the New Center area in the City of Detroit.
