What Is NYCID

Our Mission: We Improve Lives

New York Center for Interpersonal Development

At NYCID, we believe in building community and nurturing personal growth. We improve lives through conflict management, social-emotional learning, and youth development.

Founded in 1970, New York Center for Interpersonal Development (NYCID) is a not-for-profit organization on Staten Island. NYCID promotes the improvement of human relationships and the strengthening of communities. We provide youth, community, and professional development programs, as well as dispute resolution services that educate and inform the public about constructive problem-solving, effective communication, and intercultural awareness. We also operate a training institute to teach these skills to others.

We are experts in effective communication and through our core values of Collaboration, Accountability, Recognition, and Resilience, we work to help people develop the essential skills needed to move New York City toward the goal of being a more compassionate, civil, and economically mobile place for all.
