RMC2C - Rocky Mountain Cradle to Career

Broomfield Youth Employment TEGA Study

During February and March, the City and County of Broomfield is asking parents and young people to participate in brief, 30-minute, one-on-one in-person conversations to help identify barriers to self-sufficiency for disconnected youth. Community members will receive a $20 gift card as a thank you for their time.

Parents and youth are both invited to participate. Participants should be: 

  • Youth, ages 16-24, who are disconnected (not enrolled in school and not working), and those who are at risk of becoming disconnected (those youth who do not intend to enroll in any further education post high school and don’t have an employment plan)
  • Parents of youth, ages 16-24, who are disconnected and at-risk of becoming disconnected

To participate:

1. Complete the pre-survey to qualify (either youth or parent

2. Sign this consent form before you participate. Please bring the signed form to your TEGA interview or email it to JacquelineMeyer@RMC2C.org. If you are under 18, your parent or guardian will need to sign it as well. Don’t forget to pick a nickname and write it where indicated!

3. Our team will contact you to set up your conversation, where you will receive your $20 gift card as a thank you.

If you have any additional questions, or if you want to follow-up about scheduling your conversation, please contact Jacqueline Meyer, ACYI’s Community Engagement Coordinator, at JacquelineMeyer@RMC2C.org.

Why Participate?

Did you know an estimated 700 youth, ages 16-24, in Broomfield are disconnected– that is, not working and not enrolled in school. The City and County of Broomfield has joined the Rocky Mountain Cradle to Career Partnership and through this Partnership is asking community members to share their experiences, and help identify the systemic barriers that prevent youth from becoming connected and earning a self-sufficient wage to support themselves and their families. This research will inform the strategies deployed by the Broomfield Youth Employment Collaborative Action Network (CAN), whose aim is to decrease the number of disconnected youth and increase the number of youth earning a self-sufficient wage in Broomfield.
