We are pleased to announce the first two video chats in our 3-part online learning series this fall. This series is being development by the CYD National Partnership’s Field Building Action Team and is designed to provide opportunities for multiple stakeholders to connect with one another to learn, collaborate, and collectively advance creative youth development.
These conversational-style webinars are free and open to the public.

Supporting Youth-led Activism through Creative Youth Development
Thursday, October 25
3 – 4pm EST
CYD programs work across sectors to engage youth in high quality arts-based programs that make a real impact in our community. To that end, youth who participate in CYD become activists. Participants both learn about social justice issues and create art work that aims to inspire and activate social change. Join us to hear from CYD program leaders who are creating opportunities for youth to use their art to make a difference
