Colorado Youth in Action
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!
This year, youth will spend Day 1 at Green Spaces in RiNo, learning from All the TEA and the Positive Women's Network about how to be an ally to those living with HIV. They'll also get to learn all about sex ed from CYM - like how we can incorporate social issues into sex ed, and why it's important to have government buy-in. We'll then move into workshop "speed dating," where youth will rotate between three stations on pleasure and consent, reproductive justice, and sexting, before getting to choose which topic most interests them and following up. After a day of education, participants will engage in a creative art project that sends a message.
On Day 2, we act! Spending the morning in the state capitol itself, youth will get to write letters to and call their legislators, as well as meet them in person with volunteer support. They'll get to learn more about the state and federal legislative process, and even go on a tour of the capitol!
So what are you waiting for? Register today!
Colorado Youth Matter is excited to partner with All the TEA and the Positive Women's Network for Colorado Youth in Action.
