About us

 

Youth Seen’s Mission:

The mission of Youth Seen is to foster and empower the social and emotional well-being of LGBTQI youth and their families in all communities, including rural communities.

Youth Seen’s Vision​:

Youth Seen envisions a society where young people are empowered as individuals to access non-judgmental and unbiased treatment in every aspect of their lives. We encourage the creative creation of a community that celebrates everyone’s worth, diverse characteristics and dignity.

Our organization wishes to work with our communities and stand as a leader in our local Colorado area, and beyond, for establishing partnerships with groups who specifically tailor their resources, education and outreach to youth and young LGBTQI community. Youth Seen strives to highlight the intersections that many communities of color face when addressing social issues that impact families that identify under the umbrella of LGBTQI. This also includes our community members identify as gender non-conforming, non-binary, genderfluid, genderqueer and two spirit, which is often left out of the mainstream language around services.

Given the current political climate, Youth Seen acknowledges the need for our vision to be a living framework which can and will be updated based on the needs of the community. As we are providers in the community, it is our responsibility to keep the needs in focus despite what the current administration and local agenda supporters perceive.
