YCD Changemakers Gala 2022: A Night to Empower Youth
Celebrate Youth Changemakers Working for Inclusion and Justice
Thank you to our incredible community of supporters, alumni, and friends for coming together to celebrate the YCD Changemakers Gala 2022: A Night to Empower Youth! With your help, we were able to raise an eye-popping $119,281 -- exceeding our goal of $110,000! This amazing outpouring of support will go a long way toward supporting YCD's programs throughout the 2022-23 school year, as well as helping us launch our new support for inclusion and justice clubs in schools across the country.
