Sponsorship Opportunities

YCD has multiple ways for companies and organizations to demonstrate their support of youth working and striving for inclusion and justice.

YCD Program Guide Sponsor

YCD is currently seeking a Program Guide Sponsor to support the development, maintenance, and publicity of our The YCD Guide for the 2020-21 school year.

This document will be downloaded by hundreds of teens across the U.S. working to establish anti-oppression clubs, build an inclusive community in their schools, and create positive social change across a wide array of issues.

A draft list of sponsor benefits is listed here, but we are open to dialogue with interested groups to ensure the benefits match your company’s goals for sponsorship.

Program Guide sponsorship starts at $10,000, with funds going directly to support our organization’s ability to maintain this vital resource for students and teachers.

Summit Underwriter

The Student Executive Team planning the Colorado Summit for Inclusive Teen Athletics and Activities is currently seeking an underwriting sponsor.

This event is planned to take place in Colorado Springs, with an initial audience of 300+ teens, coaches and athletic directors from across Colorado.

Underwriting sponsors are the highest level of sponsorship for a YCD event, and are critical partners in YCD’s work. Even though we are currently experiencing a hiatus with this program due to COVID-19, we would like to use this time to secure an underwriting sponsor so planning can resume quickly once the health situation allows.

A draft list of sponsor benefits is listed here, but we are open to dialogue with interested groups to ensure the benefits match your company’s goals for sponsorship.

Underwriting sponsorship starts at $5,000.
