Building Our Youth's Development www.boyd-nj.org

Boys of Distinction and Girls of Grace, a New Jersey nonprofit dba Building Our Youth’s Development (BOYD) founded in 2003 to provide positive youth development and character education through administering educational enrichment, mentoring and after-school character education programs. According to Character Education Partnership, a national advocate and leader for the character education movement, Character Education is defined as ‘the intentional, pro-active effort by schools, districts and states, to instill in their students, important core, ethical values such as caring, honesty, fairness, responsibility and respect for self and others.” These types of programs compliment the work done by educators in the classroom.   In each of the BOYD applications, these programs are geared to educate, empower and enrich the lives of students in grades three thru twelve. Our goal is to have every child understand the importance of education, and take personal responsibility for their educational career.
