Montezuma Inspire Coalition


Our vision is for youth of all ages and backgrounds in Montezuma County to respect, care for and enjoy themselves, their communities and the natural world. By encouraging them to share these values with their family, friends and across generations, we seek to build an inclusive, strong, healthy and resilient community and economy.

1. We strive for comprehensive and lasting impact in our community. This requires working with integrity and passion and being inclusive, open minded and adaptive.

2. Community is at the center of our work. We focus first on people (youth and families) to foster trust, social and emotional intelligence, self-care, and self-empowerment.

3. We have a deep appreciation for the lands in our communities; we promote stewardship and conservation of the natural
and agricultural landscape of the region.
