Creative Youth Development: Leading Edge Practices Fueling Youth Engagement

Creative Youth Development is in an unprecedented era of program innovation, cross-sector partnerships, and funding diversification. In this series of workshops, leaders from across the United States will share their pioneering work, including in CYD and social justice; new, youth-report assessment tools; initiatives supporting creative career pathways; and collaborations with sectors including health, education, and juvenile justice.

Creative youth development (CYD) is a recent term for a longstanding theory of practice that integrates creative skill-building, inquiry, and expression with positive youth development principles, fueling young people’s imaginations and building critical learning and life skills.

High-quality creative youth development programs are essential pathways for young people to experience and pursue their interests in the arts. Whether you are CYD-curious or a seasoned CYD practitioner or stakeholder, this is your opportunity to connect with the dynamic field of creative youth development.

The Clare Rose Foundation, in partnership with the Creative Youth Development National Partnership, is proud to host the first BOOST creative youth development workshop strand.
