New campaign to strengthen authentic and supportive youth-adult and youth-peer relationships.

December 31, 2019

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) are working with SE2, a Denver-based communications agency, to develop the Healthy Youth Campaign. This is an innovative, statewide media campaign that engages youth and adults to strengthen authentic and supportive youth-adult and youth-peer relationships.

The goal of the research will be to explore how youth understand and experience a sense of connectedness to the adults in their lives, their peers, school and community. Research will be conducted with youth ages 12-17, parents and trusted adults (e.g. teachers, coaches, mentors, youth group leaders, etc.).

Help us recruit young people ages 12-20 for an online panel. SE2 is creating a panel of young people from across Colorado to provide real-time input on youth lifestyles and culture. Youth panelists will participate in quick weekly online polls and have an opportunity to give input on materials for the Healthy Youth Campaign, including messages and ads. 

Panelists can participate from anywhere in the state and will be paid $5 per poll and $15 per survey (via gift cards to Target, Amazon, etc.) and can earn up to $105 between December 2019 and June 2020. We are looking for diverse perspectives and young people from all backgrounds. Young people ages 12-20 can visit to submit a brief application.
