Join us for YCD’s upcoming workshops designed for the youth of Colorado.

We’re excited to be offering students and teachers the ability to continue exploring social issues and diversity at one of our upcoming workshops this Spring 2018.  See below for a list of events; more details will be added for each workshop as it is finalized.

An Evening with The Newcomers

Join YCD and author Helen Thorpe for a discussion of her new book, The Newcomers: Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom. Helen joined a class of refugee students at Denver South High School for a year to learn about their backgrounds, why they came to the United States and how they adjust to life in Colorado. Join us to hear from Helen as well as current refugee students about their experience.

The event is co-sponsored by the Denver South PTSA and will take place at Denver South High School at 7pm.  More information, including tickets, can be found here on the Denver South PTSA website.

The Intersection of Religion, Family and Sexuality

YCD and the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado are excited to present a workshop exploring the intersection of religion, family and sexuality. Join us for a talk with author Amber Cantorna, the daughter of an executive at Focus on the Family and who came out as a lesbian at age 27. We’ll collectively explore how religion and family dynamics can create positive and negative forces in LGBTQ teens’ lives.

The #MeToo Movement and Teen Relationships

YCD will host an event exploring the #MeToo movement and how it affects teenagers today. We’re still finalizing details so stay tuned and watch this space for more information!
