Creative Youth Development (CYD) intentionally integrates learning in the arts, humanities, and sciences with youth development principles. In CYD programs, young people create work and apply their creative skills to solve problems, shape their lives and build the world in which they want to live. The 2014 National Summit for CYD generated new focus and energy in CYD, catalyzing collective action (e.g., CYD National Partnership, Alliance for Creative Youth Development). In this webinar, we explore what it means to create and sustain programs for youth through this framework through case study examples, discussion, and student work. Featuring youth and adult leaders from Creative Action and Say Sí. Moderated by Denise Montgomery, director of the National CYD Initiative.
