#LeadTheChangeCO Summit Will Not Happen in 2017

  • We are working on redeveloping, and need some time to do it right.
  • Continue to use #LeadTheChangeCO for youth leadership in CO.
  • Follow #LeadTheChangeCO on Facebook.
In 2016, many of you attended the Lead The Change CO Youth Summit at Arapahoe Community College or engaged in our social media campaign. (#LeadTheChangeCO)

We will not be holding a summit this year. We are taking a step back to think about new organizational priorities around impact. In the mean time we are conducting community stakeholder interviews to design a project that delivers impact and continues to promote youth leaders and youth and adult partnerships.

We will communicate more as the project develops.

Continue to join the movement through three social media platforms:

The 2016 #LeadTheChangeCO summit was organized through a collaborative partnership of youth and adult leaders from three organizations: Shiloh House, Rise Above Colorado, and Kaiser Permanente. The #LeadTheChangeCO movement is grounded in the public health strategy of Positive Youth Development coupled with the belief that leadership, from any chair anywhere, can create the positive changes we want to see in our communities. We believe that leadership is about having life experiences, learning from them, and being willing to share that knowledge with those around you.

Summit participants explored how the four leadership skills mentioned above could be catalysts for positive change within six Action Categories that align with the goals of CO9to25 (the Colorado statewide youth development plan, These Action categories were created to be universal enough that an individual or organization could see their passions and projects reflected in them. The six categories that will be explored throughout the #LeadTheChangeCO movement:

  • Connected: Be A Friend
  • Safe: Comfort Zone
  • Healthy: Mind, Body, Spirit
  • Educated: Seek Knowledge
  • Places and Spaces: Beautify
  • Contributing: Pay It Forward
