Middle and High School students began meeting under the banner of CTC in the 2017-2018 school year. Needing no prompting from adults, the students immediately sought to explore opportunities for creating a youth link or recreation center.
The Hangout is meant for youth to have a spot to hangout after school and on weekends. Activities are planned by the CTC THS/TMS clubs, and the space is usually open Fridays
Our temporary space is located at the TSSC (Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club)and we are currently looking for a permanent space.
The Hangout is closed during the stay at home orders issued by our public health department.
Students have created videos and other media to spread their vision of CTC's message. Click hereto learn more about the videos and other multimedia that students have created to keep Telluride informed about their youth-led projects. To view videos promoting Telluride Gives, go here.
