Colorado Youth Diversity Conference
7:30 AM
Cherry Creek High School
Description:
At its inception, eighteen schools gathered for what has now grown into the largest diversity and inclusion conference in the state of Colorado. In 2020 (our last in-person event) we were pleased to have 101 schools and organizations participating, with a total attendance over 1,100. This day-long conference is the only statewide conference dealing with issues of diversity and inclusion entirely planned by and for students.

COVID-19 Update: At this time we are optimistic about holding an in-person conference at the end of January 2022. As the date nears, and as the situation changes, we will update this website.

The Conference is open to all high school students and supportive teachers/adults from across Colorado. In particular, this event is a great opportunity for groups such as:
-Diversity or multicultural student clubs
-Student councils
-Peace/conflict resolution-focused organizations, including PeaceJam and Interact
-Religious student organizations interested in exploring interfaith dialogue and positive social change
-Clubs celebrating specific student ethnicities, including Black Student Alliance, Latinx or Hispanic student clubs, Native/Indigenous student clubs and others
-Gender/sexuality-focused student groups, including gay-straight alliances
-Female empowerment student clubs
-Peer counselors
-Deaf students and their allies, including ASL signing clubs
-Disabled students from all backgrounds
-Creative writing and performance student groups, including poetry, spoken word, hip-hop, dance and other clubs
-Students from a local youth organization, even if they attend different schools
-ANY group of teens interested in improving their school’s culture or making a positive change in their community
