Community Youth Development

The Guadalupe-Parkway Neighborhood Centers facilitate a component of the Community Youth Development Program (CYD) as the contractor for StarCare Health Systems with specific zip code parameters for students living, staying or attending schools in the 79403 zip code. The CYD program is a free service funded through a grant from the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) and contracts with Fiscal Agents to develop juvenile delinquency prevention programs in zip codes that have a high incidence of juvenile crime. Approaches used by communities to prevent delinquency have included mentoring, leadership, youth employment programs, career preparation, and alternative recreation activities. Communities prioritize and fund specific prevention services identified as needed locally. CYD services are available in 15-targeted Texas zip codes.

StarCare Specialty Health System is designated as the Fiscal Agent for the Lubbock zip code 79403.
