YCD Virtual supports high school teens and educators exploring identity, educating their peers and themselves, and making schools across the US inclusive for all.
Started in response to growing interest in YCD’s programs during the COVID-19 pandemic, today YCD Virtual reaches hundreds of teens and educators in over 90 schools and youth organizations annually across the country.
YCD Virtual is designed for high schools and groups outside of Colorado and New Mexico, where YCD offers hybrid in-person and virtual programming. YCD Virtual provides workshops, trainings, discussion groups, and resources to empower teens and educators to advance inclusion and justice in their local school and community.
Students and educators can sign up for YCD Virtual here.

Native Youth Activists Speak Out
In this video we hear from Mason Estes, Leala Pourier and Lily Joy Winder about their activism work to advance racial, indigenous and environmental justice, as well as a group conversation about what celebrating Indigenous People’s Day is about, how they spent the day, why it’s important, and why it should be much more than one day.
Understanding Youth Homelessness
In this webinar we explore what causes young people to become homeless in the first place, learn about their experiences while unhoused, and also discuss strategies that help young people find housing again.
In this webinar we explore the history of Black Americans in this country and the inequities they have faced, and then turn to discuss reparations — or reparative solutions — being offered to address this history of oppression.
