GCSAPP uses research and evidence based strategies to guide our work in the community. The Colorado Healthy Kids Survey, in addition to student focus groups, helps inform GCSAPP about the unique challenges our students face. By knowing the risk and protective factors unique to our population means we can better support our youth and the struggles they face. A great example of this, is the Crested Butte Youth Council's positive messaging campaign on coffee sleeves (see more details and pictures on the "About GCSAPP" page).
