On Saturday, Youth Organizers that participated in our year long Training Institute hosted a poster session where they showcased the work they have been doing over the last several months. Youth Organizers from Boulder County middle schools and high schools selected issues in their communities that were important to them and set out to do research by interviewing their peers, teachers, and community members about the issues to better understand them and in order to find community-led solutions. Topics included racism is their schools and in school policies, suicide awareness, the impact of media on self-confidence, body image, and relationships, immigration stories from family members, end of life options, sexuality and gender diversity, and sexual violence.
