Youth Centered

We strive to build an equitable community by uplifting those often silenced, keeping youth voices at the center of our work.  


We center honesty and transparency in our work, building trust by sharing our successes, challenges, mistakes, growth, and decisions with our community. 


We harness the power of humility and humor as we engage with each other and our community, creating a safe space for joy, laughter, vulnerability, and boldness.


We actively work to become a coalition of collaborators, accomplices, and co-conspirators, rooted in inclusion, access, and anti-oppression.

Community Connection

We believe in the transformative impact of relationships, developing a healthy, caring, and supportive community.

Commitment to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Jeffco CTC recognizes institutional and systemic racism, sexism, gender bias, ableism, ageism, adultism, and economic inequality continues to pervade our society. As a coalition, we are committed to actively dismantle these and other forms of oppression.
