Youth Voice

Committed to listening to and honoring the voices and experiences of the young people we serve. 

Youth Awareness Week

The Colorado Youth Leadership Network is sponsoring Youth Awareness Week, September 7-11, 2021, to emphasize positive youth voice and to celebrate the influence youth have in our state and local communities. The week also recognizes the various organizations and advocates that involve Colorado’s youth and help guide them toward positive life choices and stability.
