As a young person, you have unique and important insight into your community. Research suggests that youth know the issues three years before adults. By participating in this project, you will:

  • Share your unique perspective
  • Inform leaders across the state about emerging issues
  • Contribute to a healthier and happier community

This guide will prompt you to think through what you know about community needs affecting young people. Your point of view is part of a youth community needs project, which is a process of identifying the most pressing issues or needs facing a community. Input from youth across Colorado will be collected and displayed on the public dashboard to impact decision-making.
