The Front Range offers a multitude of pathways for young people to engage in service, leadership, and environmental education, but gaps continue to exist in both access and in the kinds of opportunities that exist.
The YES Coalition gives youth the chance to cross organizational and regional boundaries in order to learn from one another and seek out new avenues for civic engagement and leadership.
Job Opportunities with Coalition Partners
The coalition hosts a variety of program partners from across Colorado and the Front Range. Any open job positions with Coalition Partners will be posted here.
