Creative Youth Development Peer Networks

Creative Youth Development Peer Networks

The Creative Youth Development National Partnership seeks to develop and deepen connections among local CYD peer learning networks (emerging and sustaining), working in tandem towards National Blueprint goals of building the field, supporting program quality, and raising the visibility of CYD among potential supporters.

What is a Peer Network?
CYD networks are localized (usually city, state, county, neighborhood) convenings of multiple CYD organizations from artistic mediums who are connecting with one another to learn, collaborate, and collectively advance CYD. Core to their network membership are youth and community-based organizations, funders, researchers, partners in allied youth sectors (i.e., youth development, workforce development, juvenile justice) and others that share a collective vision of advancing the role of creativity in positive youth development.
