Colorado Youth Matter helps educate the educator – in schools and communities, among families and peers.


Through training, research, advocacy, comprehensive sexuality education and youth/family partnerships, we strengthen leadership and advance the movement for youth sexual health by helping communities across Colorado reach their desired academic and health goals.


Colorado Youth Matter opened our doors in 1984 to provide training for educators and build a statewide network to advance the well-being of teen parents. Since then, we remain the only statewide organization committed exclusively to youth sexual health, access to opportunity for all youth, and support for pregnant and parenting teens.


Colorado Youth Matter actively engages Colorado communities to promote the healthy sexual development of all young people.



All young people in Colorado will be equipped with education and resources to make informed decisions about their sexual health.
