UpRISE, Colorado’s social justice youth to***co control movement, creates a “Statewide Activity” each year to generate action around issues important to teens. The Statewide activity is created by UpRISE’s Youth Action Board. This year, UpRISE’s Youth Action Board has chosen to co-create a book with young Colorado artists about how youth are shaping their world.

We invite you to share this “call for submissions” (see attached flyer) with youth, youth-serving organizations, or schools. Art can be in many forms including: poetry, creative writing, visual art, performance art, music, sculpture and more.

Art submissions can respond to one or more of the following prompts:
How are you and your generation shaping the world?
What does a fair/just world look like to you?
How does your current world affect your wellbeing?
What would you like others to take away from the power or wisdom you hold as a young person?
How do you see youth voices improving your community?


Young people can submit their work of art this submission form, which you can also find linked on the attached promotion flyer. Submissions must be received by their NEW DEADLINE April 1, 2021. All contributors will receive a FREE copy of the artbook (available in June 2021).

Help us show Colorado, how youth are shaping this world!

Authentic school-community partnerships help create and support positive student experiences both in school and out of school. But how do you align in-school and out-of-school work on social and emotional learning? That’s what the Partnerships for Social Emotional Learning Initiative (PSELI) sought to uncover in a multiyear project across six school district communities. (Learn more: http://bit.ly/3qkceEq)

Join CASEL, the Wallace Foundation, and district and community leaders from Palm Beach County as they share findings about how school and out-of-school time partners can work together to align and implement SEL. Recommended for district leaders, school leaders, and community partners, attendees will gain insights about how to support the adults in the community, improve school climate, and create seamless experiences for students.

FAMILY FIRST TRANSITION ACT FUNDS: REQUEST FOR FUNDING

Family First-Related Funding Opportunity

The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) is pleased to announce a funding opportunity, utilizing a portion of Transition Act funds, to support Family First implementation activities. Over the next three years, CDHS will be awarding up to $1.5 million for efforts that align with the following three outcomes and associated priority funding areas:

Outcome 1: Children, youth and families have timely access to a continuum of community-based, prevention-focused services that meet their needs, promote safety and well-being, and keep families together.

Priority Funding Area 1: Expand the prevention services continuum in a way that addresses locally identified needs, meets Family First requirements, addresses inequities across the state, and emphasizes cultural responsiveness.
Outcome 2: When necessary, children are placed in the least restrictive, most family-like setting possible that is aligned with their individual needs, high-quality, time-limited and focused on treatment.

Priority Funding Area 2: Build a continuum of placement options that include high-quality QRTPs as well as sufficient options for lower levels of family-based care.
Outcome 3: Colorado has a strong foundation from which to launch Family First implementation efforts and support a successful and smooth roll-out.

Priority Funding Area 3: Address known and potential barriers to Family First implementation.
CDHS is now accepting the first cycle of application submissions. Applications will be reviewed by a multi-disciplinary panel twice yearly. Up to $500,000 will be awarded each calendar year on a rolling basis, through October 2023. The first round of applications are due on January 31st, 2021, 11:59 pm MST. The review will occur over the following month, and the announcement of awards will occur between March 1-12.
CDHS encourages applications that are innovative and bold, community and data-informed, demonstrate collaboration, and promote equity. All interested applicants must complete the application linked here.
