Children & Youth Partnership for Dare County is a private, non-profit organization designed to provide programs and services to children and their families in Dare County. Created following a State of the Child Conference in 1994, the organization was charged with focusing on issues brought forward at that conference, and worked to establish the Wright Place for Youth and the Dare County Youth Center. In 1997, the Partnership began administering North Carolina's nationally recognized Smart Start Early Childhood program for Dare County, and today offers a variety of programs and resources to ensure the healthy development of all children from birth to five years of age.
