Promoting Best Practices and Connecting Resources

YDN knows that the more people learn about each other, the more they feel connected. These connections lead to increased collaboration and a tighter community that is more effective at supporting our youth.


YDN directly reached over 34 participants through various convenings and 101 community members attended 2015 fundraising events benefiting the Youth Development Network.

YDN facilitates convenings and fundraisers that bring people together to find areas of common language and approach and ultimately help them find new ways to work together. YDN shapes community events that highlight key issues, promote collaboration around a topic, and incorporate basic networking opportunities.
