RMP Featured in Kids Impact Initiative’s New Impact Assessment Fact Sheet

The Rocky Mountain Partnership was recently featured in Kids Impact Initiative’s new fact sheet, “Youth Impact Assessments: Putting Kids Front and Center in Policy Discussions.

Last fall, RMP mobilized a community coalition to help 27J Schools pass Ballot Initiative 5B, which will provide $17.7+ million annually to the third least funded school district in Colorado for career and technical education, teacher compensation, and school safety. A critical component of our strategy was to leverage a youth impact assessment to inform our Coalition’s action out in the community. Kids Impact Initiative provided technical assistance to RMP around this.

The youth impact assessment served as a catalyst for change, enabling our Civic Influencers and Community Coalition to craft a compelling narrative that resonated with voters. The Coalition used the impact assessment to amplify the voices of young people and families and successfully persuaded voters to pass a school funding measure that had faced defeat seven previous times. This remarkable victory will infuse tens of millions of dollars each year into one of Colorado’s most underserved school districts.
