2017 SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATE ENGAGEMENTS
YAASPA has partnered with youth organizations across the Denver Metro area in order to ensure there are non-partisan youth centered school board candidate engagements. As the customers of education, youth should be at the focal point for school board candidates.
You can RSVP for each and/or all of the school board candidate workshops here.
NOTE: Each organization is a 501c3 entity and will not and has not endorsed any of the candidates.
