Founded in 2004 as a sub-committee of the CHNA (Community Health Network Area), the Plymouth Youth Development Collaborative (PYDC) is a community coalition motivated around enhancing the lives of youth in our community.
The goals of the PYDC are to reduce the risk factors contributing to underage drinking and drug abuse in Plymouth; to increase the protective factors that support a healthy community; and to enhance community collaboration.
