"We must see youth as problem solvers — not as problems to be solved."

REACHING TEENS

Cowboy Capital members are working together as a community to provide teens with a system that uses the same language and approach across organizations, ranging from schools to juvenile justice to child welfare and foster care to mental health providers. Paving the Way, a federally funded grant program, is providing the Reaching Teens toolkit to interested member organizations. We will be using it to open community-wide conversations that support trauma-informed, youth-guided services throughout the community.
