Thank you to the students and teachers of Colorado for an amazing day!
At its inception, eighteen schools gathered for what has now grown into the largest diversity conference in the state of Colorado. This year we were thrilled to have 103 schools and organizations participating, with a total attendance over 1,100.

Did your school group attend the Cherry Creek Diversity Conference? YCD is serious about helping young people drive change across Colorado, and we’re putting money behind the initiative.
Teachers and students that participated in this year’s event were asked to brainstorm projects and plans to make their schools and communities better for everyone. If your group needs some funding to help make your project a reality, you can apply for up to $500 in funding through a YCD microgrant. Make sure to apply before the deadline of February 19, 2018 to be considered, and contact us with any questions.
YCD is starting plans for its 26th annual Cherry Creek Diversity Conference, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, February 2, 2019. Registration for this event will open in August 2018. If you’d like to stay notified about this event, please sign up for our mailing list, or consider following us on Facebook and Twitter.
If you are a high school student and are interested in taking a leading role in helping plan next year’s Cherry Creek Diversity Conference, consider signing up to serve on the conference’s Executive Committee.
