Inspire Colorado is a new nonprofit organization serving the state of Colorado. Inspire Colorado believes in the power of the next generation to shape their future, improve their communities, and strengthen our democracy.

Inspire Colorado’s mission is to empower high school students to drive positive change in their communities by engaging in collaborative, impactful projects to address specific issues. We believe in the strength of high school student’s voices and ideas and we want to give them the tools necessary to use their voices to impact change.

The Colorado Civic Health Index highlights Coloradoans’ passion for both formal and informal civic engagement. As a state we have a high voter turnout rate, we’re ranked 6th in the nation, and our citizens use community based and social avenues to affect change in their communities. We want to build on this culture of civic participation and engage the young voters in our state. We are a nonpartisan organization. Our only objective to empower the youth in the state regardless of their political views.  

Inspire Colorado provides opportunities for high school students to gain leadership and critical thinking skills to identify problems and create sustainable solutions. In addition, since they are the newest demographic to win the right to vote, they will learn how vital this right is to our democracy. Voting is an act of equality; the opportunity to express one’s point of view regardless of heritage, race, gender or economic level.  To be an informed voter is one’s responsibility and is best learned through grass roots civic engagement.

We are excited to be a part of the Colorado community and look forward to helping Colorado youth strengthen their political voices and change their communities!
