How we work

The Colorado Youth Congress organizes high school students across the state to put into practice our three core elements:

BUILD COMMUNITY

  • Students meet at least monthly to investigate identity, build relationships and learn from one another.

BUILD KNOWLEDGE

  • Students learn by engaging with an Action Civics curriculum facilitated by CYC staff and coaches.

  • Students learn from community leaders and elected officials about systems-level change.

BUILD SOLUTIONS

  • Students work within diverse groups to undertake projects on an issue of their choice.

  • Throughout the year, students are invited to engage in policy and advocacy opportunities.
