    Colorado Youth CREATE Council

    CREATE is a student activist council dedicated to improving comprehensive sexuality education policies and practices in schools across the state.

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, we strengthen leadership and advance the movement for youth sexual health by helping communities across Colorado reach their desired academic and health goals.


Colorado Youth Matter opened our doors in 1984 to provide training for educators and build a statewide network to advance the well-being of teen parents. Since then, we remain 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.

Youth Sexual Health in Colorado

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has developed a comprehensive plan to improve youth sexual health outcomes in Colorado, resulting in the publication, Youth Sexual Health in Colorado: A Call to Action. Colorado Youth Matter and The Healthy Colorado Youth Alliance were honored to be chosen to develop the Call to Action with the dedicated staff at CDPHE.
