Together We Change The World

In April and May student teams from Colorado Young Leaders in Central Denver, Northeast Denver, Jefferson County, Douglas County, Arapahoe County, and Colorado Springs will launch community impact projects in celebration of National Volunteer Week and Global Youth Service Day.  These Youth Leaders have been working to understand the needs of their community and developing plans to build awareness, strengthen advocacy, and directly impact causes that they care deeply about.  Global Youth Service Day Projects Include:
