Effective Communication

As the pillar to our work, we work with you to ensure that staff, students, and families are able to communicate through all types of conflict.

Trauma Informed Care

Our approach considers the complexity of how trauma exists in all relationships. We work with you to improve all outcomes by addressing them directly.

Personal Leadership

With Effective Communication and restorative practices as our guidepost, we approach personal leadership using mindfulness meditation and principle-based leadership practices which help build essential skills.


We teach Mindfulness as a state of active and open attention to the present moment, without judgment. We help people intentionally directing their awareness to thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, for the purpose of helping them learn how to self-regulate and be more accountable to the things that matter most. We show them how mindfulness is often practiced through meditation techniques and that it can be applied to everyday activities.

Social-Emotional Support

We improve lives by inspiring minds, filling hearts and helping youth see their full potential through realizing what makes them happy and fulfilled.

Whole Family Support

We strive to use a whole Family approach so that your school has the help it needs to engage families and provide meaningful solutions and resources.

Workforce Training and Employment

Focused on Opportunity Youth ages 16 to 24 years old, NYCID provides internship, Summer Youth Employment, and credentialing that helps to set participants on Career Pathways.

NYCID’s Training Insitute can provide professional development and training for schools, businesses, and non-profit organizations. Contact: Michael De Vito Jr. at [email protected] to set up a meeting to discuss how we can support your efforts.
