Youth Celebrate Diversity

YCD is building a grassroots movement of students and educators addressing social problems, celebrating diversity and making schools safe for everyone. Through our innovative, youth-driven outreach, we ask students to identify the challenges they are facing—whether race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, ability and disability, mental health, stereotypes, and more. We then bring together students and teachers from public and private, large and small, urban and rural schools for eye-opening experiences that spark dialogue, insight, empathy and action. Our vision is that one day, every teen in America will feel safe to achieve in school. For more about us, visit  For more about our participation in the Colfax Marathon, contact Caleb Munro,
