Welcome to Impact Youth Initiative!
The mission: To support the Impact Youth Initiative, a youth council of Pueblo County high school students, to activate and engage youth in the Pueblo Creative Corridor, a Colorado Certified Creative District. Impact Youth Initiative will be facilitated by the Pueblo Arts Alliance and will meet weekly to produce monthly art focused placemaking activations for one year from June 1, 2020 through May 31, 2021. The goals of the Impact project will be to 1) create youth activation through the arts in the Corridor, 2) create a sense of youth “ownership” of the Corridor, and 3) provide youth with practical applications of civic engagement and City government processes.
We are partnering with the Student Government at CSU-P to fill our Belly box and in collecting donations. We will also be partnering with them on future projects in our community.
The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do. –
