Media Center + Resources
The work of Colorado Youth for a Change spans across Colorado and supports students from a variety of backgrounds, ages, and geographies. We are happy to field media requests and provide resources to meet your needs.
Founded in 2005, Colorado Youth for a Change addresses barriers to learning by providing individualized supports throughout pivotal stages of students’ education journeys. Our prevention programs support students to catch up with peers and stay engaged in school, while our Reengagement program identifies and assists young people who have left school without a diploma to reenroll. These programs support over 6,000 Colorado students ages 3-21 every year to maximize their own learning and growth. To learn more about our work, please visit our website.
