CYD Toolkit Series

The CYD Toolkit Series is an 8-part, free virtual learning series featuring dynamic online conversations with youth, experts, funders and practitioners to explore new paths forward for supporting youth through creative youth development practice. This series is now completed. You can find links to the webinar recordings below.

Practitioners will especially benefit from these conversations as they strive to support youth during this time of ongoing, intensified crises.

This virtual learning series is brought to you by the Creative Youth Development National Partnership. One of the National Partners, Americans for the Arts, recently spearheaded the development of 7 written briefs authored by field experts as part of the first phase of a creative youth development toolkit for the field. All webinars are hosted by the National Guild for Community Arts Education and made possible by generous support from the Clare Rose Foundation.
