"It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength." -Maya Angelou

Youth Initiatives

We at the National Diversity Council recognize that our youth are the future, and in order for our country to continue to be productive and excel on the global stage, we must make an investment in their education. In our society today, youth especially minorities experience numerous challenges and barriers in both middle school and high school. As a result, few successfully make the transition to college.

Through our youth programs, the National Diversity Council aims to provide diversity and inclusion education, resources, tools and forums to middle and high school students, in order to provide them with support they require to succeed in their secondary education. We encourage you to get involved, and help us in putting our Youth FIRST!

The Diversity Youth Programs and Initiatives include:

  • Youth Diversity Leadership Institute
  • Encourage to Achieve
  • Young Women’s Leadership Symposium
  • Vision
  • Generation Next
  • STEM Program
  • Youth Conferences
