Jeffco CTC does much of its work through the coalition’s workgroups.  Each workgroup has specific priorities and/or projects, all focused on Jeffco’s mission of – in partnership with youth – improving health, safety, and wellness in Jefferson County.  Please find additional information about each workgroup below, or contact to learn how you can become involved.    

Data and Evaluation Workgroup

The Data and Evaluation Workgroup reviews youth survey and public data to help Jeffco CTC select the coalition’s priorities, including risk and protective factors.  The workgroup also monitors changes in community-level outcomes over time and is currently reviewing and revising the coalition’s logic models.

Jeffco Teens Workgroup

The Jeffco Teens Workgroup is for youth (aged 11 – 22) in Jefferson County to work with other youth on projects they are interested in. This includes learning about and participating in coalition work to improve health, safety, and wellness in Jefferson County. Plus, youth who participate get paid!

Jeffco Teens Community Impact Workgroup

The Jeffco Teens Community Impact Workgroup identifies meaningful opportunities and training for young people throughout the community.  The workgroup also supports the efforts of youth throughout the coalition.  In addition, the workgroup creates space to recognize the contributions of youth to both the coalition as well as the broader community.

Out for Safe Spaces Workgroup

“Out for Safe Spaces” is a national initiative, run by the LA LGBT Center, that supports adults who work with youth so they can be visibly identified as trusted adults to LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and multiracial youth. Building Allyship and Diversity in Jeffco (BADJ) is the Jefferson County iteration of this project, organized by Jeffco CTC in partnership with the LA LGBT Center. 

Policy & Substance Use Availability Workgroup

The goal of the Policy & Substance Use Availability Workgroup is to change community policy and norms to reduce risk factors related to substance misuse. 

Social Emotional Learning and Health Education Workgroup

The SEL and Health Education Workgroup works closely with Jeffco Public Schools to analyze youth survey and public data to review, revise, and implement equitable health education standards for all Jefferson County high schoolers.
