Vision statement:

Estes Park is an engaged community where families and youth thrive.

The Estes Park CTC has convened and organized stakeholders in the community into the following operational groups:

  • Community Board
    • Work groups
    • Key Leader Board
    • Youth in Action

Together, these groups help to drive the CTC process in the community. The CTC community board data work group has conducted a data assessment to identify leading risk and protective factors among local youth, and has recommended priority areas to the community board. The community board has taken action to prioritize three risk factors (listed below), and is now undergoing a community resource assessment to learn what gaps and opportunities exist in the community.

  1. Academic Success
  2. Extreme Economic Deprivation
  3. Low neighborhood attachment
  4. Family prosocial involvement

CTC is a community process. CTC relies on a wide variety of community partners in various sectors to help steer this process. Community partners involved in the Northern Larimer County CTC process include:

CTC has partnered with the Estes Valley Library and Estes Park Nonprofit Resource Center (EPNRC) to bring a youth voice to area nonprofits.  High school students learn about board governance, attend board meetings based on the preference, learn about risk and protective factors, participate in service projects, and conduct a grant giving project.
