CYD in Libraries Summer Webinar Series

Our year-long Creative Youth Development (CYD) webinar series continues. While the first sessions focused on CYD fundamentals, this summer’s webinars focus on the growing field of library-based CYD.

In this three-part series presented by the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards (NAHYP) and the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), participants will explore best practices in CYD library programming, learn how the humanities are incorporated into these programs, and review the overall NAHYP application process.
