Is this meant for youth/young adults, or can adults of any age attend?
Interested in attending and finding out more details.
Will there be online (either social media or e-mail) reminders of these meetings?
The current plan is to do them via e-mail and/or a calendar invite. We will be sure to check in with the cohort to see what might work best.
Is parking available for the downtown sessions?
I won't be back in Denver until October, so could I still apply even though I won't be able to attend the first 3-4 sessions?
We invite you to apply if you would like and acceptance will depend on the availability of spots. If you do decide to apply, please make a note in your application. Thank you for your interest!
