Letter: Expand YouthZone program

We are a group of students in FAD class at Glenwood Springs High School. We are working on our “Project Citizen” project to try to improve our city, our county, our state and possibly the United States.

Our policy is trying to expand the juvenile diversion program of YouthZone to all of the state of Colorado, so teenagers who commit an unlawful act get an opportunity to redeem their acts. This program helps juveniles by providing youth assessment, parent support, individual and family counseling, restorative justice, court programs, mentoring, education workshops, public policy and resource advocacy, and more.

Our group is doing a presentation on May 21 at the small performance room at GSHS, It would be greatly appreciated if you were to be present at our presentation.
