Join Our Youth Advisory Committee!

Colorado Rising for Communities’ Youth Advisory Committee is a program to cultivate more youth leaders in the climate movement. The committee will be made up of ten youth, aged 12-18, and will meet biweekly from June through September. Those on the committee will work towards making positive, localized community impacts. We’re offering stipends, free food, workshop opportunities, gifts, and creative freedom to work on passion projects relating to environmental justice. This committee will also support planning for the next Youth Unity Rising Summit!
