    The organization was launched by a group of parents concerned about drug use among high school students. The agency’s original focus was to provide recreational activities along with drug information and education to youth. In its first years of operation, YouthZone assisted about 400 youth between 14 – 17 years old.

    Today, YouthZone works with more than 600 youth each year, serving the communities of Aspen, Basalt, El Jebel, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, New Castle, Silt, Rifle, and Parachute.

    YouthZone’s professionalism and experience in youth work have garnered local, state and national accolades.
