    cyia

    Every year, Colorado Youth Matter hosts Youth Action Day - a day that gives young people the tools they need to be politically involved. But this year, we wanted to do even more. That's why we're teaming up with All the TEA and the Positive Women's Network, and expanding Youth Action Day into a two-day event: Colorado Youth in Action!

    When it comes to youth sexual health education, it’s good to pause and remember that this work should always be grounded in youth experiences and insights. That’s why the work that Kids First Health Care does with the youth-run VOIHCE group is so impressive.

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.

Mission

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

 

Vision

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