They believe that in order for community development to be successful, it must be driven by, and serve the interests of the local community. Through conducting needs assessments and facilitating community dialogue, CGDCNY creates comprehensive neighborhood plans, and helps to organize community members to put those plans into action.
A primary goal of CGDCNY is to help develop bold and effective community leadership. Through their Cadet Program for high school students, their internships for college students, and their community leadership training workshops, they aim to spark the minds that will continue to change their communities.
