Things We're Thankful For

It is Thanksgiving week, which means lots of great things are on our minds. Turkey…stuffing….mashed potatoes….pumpkin pie…YUM! And don’t forget spending time with family, friends and loved ones. We recognize that the roots of this holiday are negative and disrespectful to say the least for some Native American people, and we also see the present-day celebrations as an opportunity to remind ourselves of all the wonderful things we have to be thankful for!

We are thankful for our wonderful Colorado Youth Matter staff, board and council members – our work family! How could you not love all of those lovely smiling faces?!?!



We are thankful for the opportunity to offer a safe and inclusive space and work environment for all genders.



We are thankful for our furry family members, many of which make an appearance in our office on the regular!



We are thankful for an amazing, committed and hardworking youth council that elevates the work of Colorado Youth Matter in ways we could only dream of!



We are thankful to live and work in such a beautiful place as Colorado, especially when said place provides us opportunity to spend time together running/walking for pumpkin pie!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
