About Youth Design Center

Youth Design Center is the first nonprofit, youth-led creative agency and innovation hub in East Brooklyn. We provide gateways for young people to learn marketable design and tech skills, access postsecondary education, achieve economic mobility, and engage in place-based community revitalization. 

Our mission is to increase racial and ethnic diversity in design and technology professions and to disrupt cyclical poverty and youth unemployment. We aim to reduce the number of disconnected youth by lowering their barriers to entry to the STEAM professions and increasing their relevant experience in the innovation economy. Toward achieving this goal, we respond to two interrelated issues: the lack of diversity in the design and technology sectors and the ongoing cycle of poverty amongst youth of color.
