    2016 SASH Report

    Announcing the 2016 State of Adolescent Sexual Health (SASH) Report! This report provides up-to-date data and recommendations for youth sexual health across Colorado. 


Colorado Youth Matter helps educate the educator – in schools and communities, among families and peers.


Through training, research, advocacy, comprehensive sexuality education and youth/family partnerships, Colorado Youth Matter strengthens leadership and advances the movement for youth sexual health by helping communities across Colorado reach their desired academic and health goals.


Colorado Youth Matter opened its doors in 1984 to provide training for educators and build a statewide network to advance the well-being of teen parents. Since then, it remains the only statewide organization committed exclusively to youth sexual health, access to opportunity for all youth, and support for pregnant and parenting teens.


Colorado Youth Matter actively engages Colorado communities to promote the healthy sexual development of all young people.



All young people in Colorado will be equipped with education and resources to make informed decisions about their sexual health.

Colorado experiences staggering decline in teen birth rates.

An announcement from the Colorado Department of Health and Environment released October 22, 2015 states that teen pregnancies have dropped a total of 48% from 2009 to 2014. Learn more about this progress and Colorado Youth Matter's next steps here.
