Workshop Description

Over the summer, student interns with the West Slope Youth Vote (WSYV) program worked hard to develop a Western Youth Issues Report. This report focuses on connecting youth to Colorado bills that directly impact high school-aged students and their legislators that voted on them. But it also engages students by asking what issues matter most to them. Through this dynamic and interactive workshop, students will brainstorm issues and ways they could ask elected officials to take action to address these needs. The issues identified will be carried to the Capitol by WSYV interns to represent youth on the Western Slope.
