Right now, someone you know is embattled in a conflict they are not skilled enough to resolve alone.
A friend is fighting with a neighbor over a parking space or the trash. A loved one is facing the devastating choice of dropping out of school to pay the bills. A family member could be struggling to decide between a bad and worse job.
Right now, you know someone who needs NYCID’s help.
Communicating effectively through conflict is a cornerstone of healthy human relationships and thriving communities. For 50 years, we at New York Center for Interpersonal Development (NYCID) have nurtured people and helped them develop those skills which makes New York City move toward the goal of being a more civil and economically stable city for all.
Every day, we bring that vision closer to reality by providing youth, community, and professional development programs, each one emphasizing problem-solving, communication, trauma care, and intercultural awareness. If not for NYCID’s services our community would not have a trusted ally in finding solutions to their everyday problems. Our neighbors would be at odds and have no choice other than arbitration; and our kids would not have mentors to help them through the tough stuff like failing out of school, homelessness, addiction, teen pregnancy, and dead-end jobs.
