Boulder's Child Friendly City Initiative


The Growing Up Boulder team has been busy organizing, training, and facilitating "Community Conversations" as part of Boulder's Child Friendly City process.  The photo above is from a "Teen Town Hall," one of the Community Conversations facilitated by the City's Youth Opportunities Advisory Board (YOAB) for their peers!  Community Conversations will help us learn what children, youth, parents/elders, and service providers (i.e. teachers, therapist) identify as their top priorities to improve young people's well-being in Boulder.  If you live in Boulder and are a child, teen, parent/elder or service provider, please share your thoughts through this 5 minute survey (the survey closes 12/31/23).
