Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties Managing Director, Jennifer Coulson, recently joined the Executive Board of the Eagle River Youth Coalition. Jennifer commented on her new position by saying, “It is an honor to work with such an incredibly devoted group of community members from so many different backgrounds. The positive energy focused on and directed towards this important mission is a blessing to our community. I feel fortunate to sit on the Executive Board.”
The mission of the Eagle River Youth Coalition is to collaborate with Eagle River youth-serving organizations to assess prevention needs, coordinate substance abuse prevention efforts, and build capacity through strategic plans, programs and policies around the issues facing young people. The Eagle River Youth Coalition (ERYC) was founded in 2001 through a collaborative vision of Leadership Vail Valley, the Eagle CARES Survey team, and Eagle County to provide cohesion among youth service providers. ERYC was charged with overseeing data assessment to ensure the community had an honest measure of youth behaviors and perceptions and a way to analyze effectiveness and gaps in youth services. These outcomes would drive ERYC’s leadership in collaborative planning of youth services. By working together with a diverse variety of service providers, the community could more effectively assess and meet the changing needs of youth and mobilize the community for positive change.
Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties President & CEO, Todd Conklin, stated, “Jen’s passion for the community and willingness to volunteer her time to give back is truly inspirational!”
