I have served on the board of ERYC for over ten years, and I have personally witnessed the impact the orgnization has both on a broad spectrum of youth serving organizations, as well as directly on youth and families. As an umbrella organization the primary focus is working collaboratively with the other youth serving non-profits in Eagle County to identify relevant issues, both through frequent meetings with local stakeholders as well through the use of the biannual Healthy Kids Colorado Survey, and ensure that resources are deployed most effectively to address them. Neverhteless, the organization also impacts youth directly through the Youth Leadership Council, bringing together local high school students who share a common interest in creating a supportive community for themselves, their peers and other area youth. Finally, the organization also holds workshops and seminars for parents to assist them in helping their children deal with issues commonly faced by them.

The reach of the organization is evidenced by the broad participation on the board, whose members include local law enforcement, politicians, educators, business executives and owners, mental health professionals, and local media.
