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, www.co9to25.org). 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
