Mountain Youth Network

Communities that Care Clear Creek County is now Mountain Youth Network (MYN)

FINAL CTC-logo-MountainYouthMountain Youth Network (MYN) is an evidence-based prevention planning system that promotes healthy development, improves outcomes, and reduces problem behaviors among youth. The MYN process uses local data to identify a community's risks and strengths. Based on this information, the community coalition then implements strategies to decrease risks and amplify strengths.

In addition to community collaboration, the MYN process emphasizes Positive Youth Development (PYD) where youth are supported in rising to their full potential. Communities That Care Clear Creek County has prioritized the development of opportunities for youth involvement in our community.

Funding for Communities That Care

The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) provided grants to local public health agencies across the state to implement MYN. This funding is available through tax revenue from retail marijuana sales. Clear Creek County was eligible for this opportunity because mental health and substance abuse were identified as priorities in the county's Public Health Improvement Plan (PDF).

5 PhasesThe MYN process includes five phases. Clear Creek County is about to begin Phase 4: Create a Community Action Plan.
