Pikes Peak Regional Council identifying early childhood organizations in El Paso County and researching needs of Teller County

In its first year of existence, the Pikes Peak Regional Council has effectively identified needs in El Paso and Teller Counties through talking to community leaders, conducting focus groups, and meeting with various organizations. Early on, the Council elected to concentrate on two populations: children birth to five and nine to 15. Given this focus, the Council has researched organizations working in both early childhood education and middle school, and has held discussions with executives from several of these organizations. From conversations with nonprofit leaders, as well as continued research, the Council has approved two grants serving the desired populations. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Pikes Peak Region is working to launch the Sports Buddies program, a program designed to attract male mentors. Additionally, Colorado Springs Teen Court was given funding to provide free classes for youth offenders. The Council is now identifying early childhood organizations in El Paso County and researching the needs and assets of Teller County.
