You can join us in making a difference in Colorado by building an incredible place to be Jewish. YAD provides adults in their 20s and 30s with on-ramps for engagement through robust programming, connections, and by making Colorado an inclusive, meaningful and vibrant place to be Jewish. To accomplish the above mission, YAD employs a three-tiered strategy centered around three areas of engagement: LIVE Jewish, GIVE Jewish, and LEAD Jewish.

YAD: Young Adult Department, a program of JEWISHcolorado. Live. Give. Lead. Jewish. Join us for upcoming YAD Events! See below for programs for young adults in their 20s and 30s.
