We work hard to support all schools in attending our events, even those driving long distances.
We are serious about making the New Mexico Diversity Conference for Youth a statewide event for all students, and that includes schools travelling long distances to reach the conference. Whether coming from Las Cruces, Farmington, Carlsbad or anywhere else in New Mexico, here you will find information about how your school can join us for the event without having to incur significant additional cost.
In general, school groups within a 3-hour drive of the Albuquerque Metro area can attend the event without requiring overnight stays.
YCD will be negotiating a hotel room block near the conference venue. Stay tuned and check this page for further updates.
Reimbursement for Travel Costs
Is your school wanting to attend the New Mexico Diversity Conference, but not sure how you can cover gas, lodging, food and other travel expenses?
YCD is building partnerships with foundations and grantmakers across the state to reimburse schools for these costs so they can join us for this powerful event. Contact us to let us know of your interest, and we’ll put you in touch with a local foundation or donor who may be willing to help.
