The Connecticut YOUTH Forum

The Connecticut YOUTH Forum (YF) is a community outreach program of the non-profit organization, The Connecticut Forum. The YF grew out of response to the 1993 Focus on Race Relations Forum.  For the past twenty one years, the YF has provided opportunities for teens to connect with other teens from different towns, ethnic and racial groups, around issues that they care about, in a format of open honest discussion. Each YF meeting follows our key values called the YOUTH Forum Culture of Validation.
