Metro Youth Alliance- A Denver Metro Youth Advisory Board

 

A youth advisory board (YAB) is a place where you can voice your opinion and make change happen!  Metro Youth Alliance is a YAB made up of former and current foster care youth, and youth with other backgrounds, who work together to improve the experience of youth in foster care, and collaborate to identify projects they would like to pursue to improve their communities.

As a member of Metro Youth Alliance, you’re a part of the decision making process on ways to improve the experience and outcomes for youth in foster care, and to make a positive impact in your community.  It’s a chance for you to make an impact on issues you feel passionate about! The State of Colorado is always asking for input from youth to improve the outcomes and experiences of youth in foster care.

The counties in the Denver Metro area (Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson), along with youth in the Legacy Project through CASA, are collaborating to form the Metro Youth Alliance. We are meeting every third Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30 pm on the Auraria Campus.
