Colorado Youth Matter is currently restructuring the CREATE Youth Council. We are excited to announce that for the 2015-2016 school year, we will have a Youth Advisory Board to advise and make recommendations to our programs, trainings, research, events and policies to determine that they are accessible and inclusive of young people in Colorado. Members will, in addition, help plan and implement several Colorado Youth Matter events and trainings, most notably the annual Youth Action Day. We will make sure to offer leadership development, trainings, professional development and opportunities for growth as well as a quarterly stipend of $100 in exchange for Youth Advisory Board members' services.
