Youth Hub
Youth Hub

Youth on Record launched YOR’s new Youth Hub to better serve youth online. After a focus group with some young creatives, it was clear that the current website wasn’t providing young people with the best access for all of YOR’s out-of-school programs and resources.

Youth on Record engaged long-time partner, Elevated Third, and together they collaboratively built the new YOR Youth Hub that includes fresh colors and design, a streamlined events calendar, and easier navigation among YOR programs' information and resources.

Founding Our Future
The Fellowship

The Youth on Record Fellowship program is an intensive and comprehensive 10-month program that is designed to bridge the gap between high school and either post-secondary school or a career. Each month, YOR Fellows participate in personal, professional and artistic development programming, designed to help them set and achieve goals for their next stage of life.

Block Party
Block Party

Traditionally, YOR hosts a youth-led, youth-designed community block party in the La Alma/Lincoln Park neighborhood featuring musical performances from youth ages 11-24. The event brings together 500+ community members in a free, day-long family friendly festival where audiences hear original music and poetry from youth who have been engaged in YOR's year-long programming. Participants also receive community services and resources at the event. This is part of YOR's lease agreement with the Denver Housing Authority.

YOR Sessions

These once-in-a-lifetime musical experiences will not only bring relevant and compelling artists to the Colorado community, but will give Youth on Record students the opportunity to learn all aspects of the recording arts. Annual recordings will be released on a compilation album, with proceeds from the sales benefiting Youth on Record’s music programs for underserved, local teens.
