Are you in grades 6-12 and live in Sarasota County? Then there are many ways to get involved with CYD...
Attend one of the many events that CYD offers for teens in Sarasota County! All you need is a photo ID to attend (yearbook, license, school ID) - if you don't have one, you can get one through CYD! All of the events are created by teens and adults together - no boring "dances" or lame "outings".
Have an idea for an activity? Speak up! Call (or email) CYD with your idea and you could be jamming at your own event very soon! Hit this link to tell us what activities you would like to see offered in Sarasota County.
Don't complain there's nothing to do -make it happen through CYD!
Tired of the way things are in the community? Want to make a difference? Take a Stand! Through CYD, youth get to work with community leaders to change the way Sarasota County operates.
"It's cool. You get to tell people what's going on and then together do something about it. Something actually happens!"
"The STAR program is great. You get to serve in a position normally for adults only."
Develop your leadership skills through CYD. Be an equal partner with adults. Learn skills you will use in college and your career like communication, public speaking, problem solving and decision making.
"At CYD, you get to help others in making good decisions instead of bad ones."
