Youth Celebrate Diversity brings teenagers together from public and private, large and small, urban and rural high schools to share ideas in a cooperative atmosphere.
Throughout our events, students and faculty advisors hear from a keynote speaker, participate in discussion groups led by trained student facilitators, attend two workshops of their choice and make a plan to improve their local school or community.
We believe that through dialogue and collaborative learning experiences, students can address the social issues affecting their schools and communities in a positive manner, and through these experiences become empowered to take action.
YCD has several programs throughout Colorado and New Mexico:
- Cherry Creek Diversity Conference (Denver, Colorado)
- Diversity Leadership Institute for Teachers (Denver, Colorado)
- Mountain West Diversity Conference (Gypsum, Colorado)
- New Mexico Diversity Conference (Albuquerque, New Mexico)
- Northern Colorado Diversity Conference (Fort Collins, Colorado)
YCD was honored to receive the Governor's Service Award for Outstanding Nonprofit Organization in September 2018. For more information, please visit www.ycdiversity.org.
