Consejos de adolescentes

Para su información, tiene dos consejos juveniles como parte de la Alianza Juvenil del Condado de Chaffee (CCYA), uno en Salida y otro en Buena Vista. La misión de los consejos juveniles es apoyar a los adolescentes que llevan una vida saludable en el condado de Chaffee mediante la organización de eventos divertidos y libres de sustancias y el aumento del impacto de la voz de los adolescentes a través de la defensa.

Buena Vista
5to trimestre

BV 5th Quarter comenzó como un grupo que organizaba eventos divertidos y sin sustancias después de los partidos. Se convirtió en parte del Consejo Estudiantil de BVHS y de FYI en 2019, y es una reunión de personas dedicadas y apasionadas por apoyar a los adolescentes en Buena Vista.

El quinto trimestre se reúne durante el almuerzo en BVHS y siempre hay refrigerios. Cualquier estudiante de secundaria en BV puede unirse, siempre y cuando se comprometa a asistir a las reuniones y ayudar con los eventos.

Eventos y proyectos anteriores han incluido: noches de natación gratis en Mt. Princeton; eventos de autocine; noches de juegos en Simple Eatery; trabajando en el viaje gratuito para adolescentes con Chaffee Shuttle.

Salida Extraordinaria

  • I'm interested in learning more. How do I get in touch?
    Reach out to James Fenwick at james.fenwick@state.co.us or contact us through the form at the bottom of this page.
  • I'm 20 years old. Do I still qualify for any of your programs?

  • What will I be doing in the program?
    Although Community Partnership for Families is a voluntary program, it will require your active participation in establishing goals and working to achieve those goals. FYI's staff will assist by supporting your efforts and meeting on a regular basis to encourage and connect you with the resources you need to be successful.
  • Can my family participate without a referral?
    It depends, though almost all families participating were referred to the program through Chaffee County Child Protection Services or other community organizations. For more information, contact Donna Golden at donna.golden@state.co.us
  • How often does Youth In Action meet?
    Once a week during the school year, Mondays in BV and Tuesdays in Salida
  • How is Youth In Action funded?
    Youth In Action is funded through a number of different sources. Prevention work is important to our local county government, which supports our program. Many of the dollars for direct program operations come from grants and community donations.
  • What do matches do when they meet?
    Matches have the ability to determine what they want to do when they meet, and it can vary from week to week. Some examples of match activities include; hiking, biking, cooking, baking, arts and crafts, fishing, stand up paddle boarding, rock climbing, reading, watching movies, gardening, reading, lawn games, etc. You get the idea; the sky is the limit!
  • How often do matches meet?
    Matches are encouraged to meet once a week for two to three hours on average.
  • How are Chaffee County Mentors funded?
    Prevention work is important to our local government too, which therefore supports our program. Many of the dollars for program operations come from grants and community donations.

    Just fill out the Mentee Application Form and someone will reach out to you! If you want to nominate a youth to be paired with a mentor, fill out the Mentee Nomination Form.
  • I'm in! How do I apply?
    Fill out a Mentor Application Form, and send the Mentor Reference Form out to three references!
  • What if I’m a mentor and am going to be gone for a couple of weeks?
    For prolonged time away, program staff can jump in and spend time with your mentee-remember, we like to think young people are fun to hang out with too! Also, thanks to technology, even when you are away for an extended time, you can still maintain contact.
  • I'm in middle school. Can I join a teen council?
    Unfortunately, at the moment we do not have a middle school council. Feel free to still reach out, and we will make sure to get you connected to a teen council when you begin high school!

    Simply come to one of the standing meetings 1x week at the Salida or Buena Vista High School - always accepting new members. Contact: Dibby Olson, dolson@chaffeecounty.org
  • What is your focus as a coalition?
    Our focus is on promoting youth health in Chaffee County, particularly "upstream" prevention efforts. Much of the focus in the past six years has been on addressing statistically high rates of underage substance use.

    As a community-based coalition, CCYA is open to anyone from the community who wants to participate. Reach out to us through the contact form below, and we can get you connected.

Testimonios

“El quinto trimestre me ha brindado la oportunidad de brindarles a mis compañeros un ambiente seguro y divertido donde pueden disfrutar de la compañía de los demás. Ver a la gente divertirse sin el uso de sustancias es la razón por la que disfruto tanto ser parte de nuestro consejo de adolescentes”.
