The Youth Leadership Team (YLT) provides young people with an opportunity to provide their voice, perspective, and solutions to issues impacting youth. YLT members are between the ages of 14-24, are hired as a city employee, and serve as a youth advisory group for Department of Safety and the city's Youth Violence Prevention Action Table. The YLT also provides peer mentoring support for youth ages 9-13.
The Youth Leadership Summit
The all-day summit is designed to give youth an opportunity to discuss issues they face, support programs and policies that better the lives of youth within the Denver-metro area, and develop an ongoing partnership within the community.
Youth Summit sponsors and participants challenge young people to engage in meaningful dialogue with city leaders about issues ranging from health, safety, secondary education, and job readiness. Since its inception, the youth summit has been attended by over 15,000 youth and adults.
