Our conference is planned entirely by and for students, and you’re invited.

One of the conference’s most unique aspects is the Executive Committee, a team of some twenty students who plan the conference in its entirety. While the conference’s goals do not change year to year, every other detail is planned by this group of dedicated volunteers. We also take the group through a variety of bonding exercises, to explore their own identity as well as learn about others in the group. The Executive Committee also has a chance to participate in several workshops on different diversity-related topics leading up to the conference.

The committee is open to all high school students. We actively recruit and encourage students from all backgrounds and from a variety of Western Slope high schools to join us for this unique, compelling experience.

Information Sessions

This year YCD will be hosting two information sessions for students who may be interested in participating in the Executive Committee, but want more information. Please consider joining us at one of these upcoming events to meet the student co-chairs for the 2019 conference, hear from alumni who have participated on the EC before, and ask any questions you have about this unique opportunity!
