The Indiana Youth Development (IYD) Credential offers a professional certification for those who work with school-age or adolescent children. Like the Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential for early childhood workers, the IYD Credential provides a way to demonstrate knowledge and skills suitable to working with older children. Assessment, documentation and awarding of the credential are administered by the Indiana Youth PRO Association (formerly School-Age Consortium).
