The Colorado Teen Parent Collaborative (TPC) is a unified community of organizations driven by the strength of teen parents to raise public awareness, share resources, and advocate for public policy that benefits teen parents and their children. Its members include individuals and organizations advocating on behalf of or providing services and supports to pregnant and parenting teens and their children.
Benefits of membership include information exchange, networking and opportunities for collaboration; education and professional development; and coalition partnerships and advocacy.
The TPC consists of two classes of members: voting members and participating members. Voting
members are those individuals who have submitted a signed copy of this membership agreement to the TPC coordinator in an individual or organizational capacity. Voting members are entitled to vote on policy positions and decisions endorsed by the TPC. Participating members are individuals who are interested in attending TPC meetings or events but have not submitted a signed copy of this membership agreement to the TPC coordinator and may not vote on TPC policy positions or decisions. Any policy positions taken are those of the TPC as a collective and are not necessarily endorsed by individual members or member organizations.
