What is Kyd Network?

Our Vision is to ensure all Kalamazoo County youth are college, career, and community ready by the age of 21.

Our Mission is to ensure that all Kalamazoo County youth have access to high quality, youth-driven, culturally-agile, and equitable OST programs that are part of a well-coordinated system.

Our Goal is implementing a system of quality and accountability to produce the best outcomes for youth who participate in Out-of-School Time programming and ensure youth have access to a full array of enrichment and learning opportunities that prepare them for college, work, and life.

Now 24 OST organizations serve approximately 5029 youth in Kalamazoo County
If 44% of families want OST opportunities for their children in Kalamazoo County, OST programs would need the capacity to serve 18,040 youth
