YouthZone is proud to partner with various other non-profits and entities within the Roaring Fork and Grand River Valleys to ensure we are raising the healthiest youth possible.
We rely on the teachers, counselors and professionals in our school system to refer at-risk youth to YouthZone. Police officers in the towns often refer young people to YouthZone that they fear may be heading down a difficult path that leads them to the court system. While YouthZone works extensively with kids who have been arrested, we want to help kids before they enter the court system.
We encourage our partners in the community to call us directly with referrals whenever you encounter a young person who needs help.
Collaboration with local and state partners is an integral party of YouthZone operations. Below are just a few of the entities we collaborate with:
Coalition for Families: A collaborative management program in Garfield and Pitkin Counties
Garfield & Pitkin County Trauma Task Force
Garfield County Family & Community Engagement Teams (FACETs)
School Resource Officer Meetings
