Through ELPASO VOZ, parents organize and use their leadership skills for the betterment of Boulder County. This program focuses on leadership within the community and familial wellbeing to create social change. Using Asset-Based-Community Development (ABCD) strategies, ELPASO has successfully given parents a voice and power to make a change.
