Youth Leadership

STAMP stands for Students Taking Action and Making Progress

CIRCLE offers year-round youth leadership programs, known as STAMP programs, to BIPOC, 2SGLBTQ+, and ally youth in grades 7th to 12th -- centered in co-creation with the students. 

Each opportunity builds on each other through an identity journey, letting students develop a multifaceted understanding of their leadership and how to spark positive change in their communities. Students who take part in STAMP learn how to take action and make progress rooted in practices of self & community care, healing, and wellness.

To be a STAMP student leader means to be a part of something larger; to be a changemaker, an upstander, a guide for others, to lead in creating inclusive, culturally responsive communities.

STAMP Programs Include: 

  • STAMP Conference
  • STAMP Camps
  • STAMP Youth Leadership Council

STAMP Conference

Student Created and Run Near-Peer Conference

The annual STAMP Conference is designed and facilitated by high school STAMP student leaders from across the Denver metro area to middle school students. The conference is a great entry point for students to learn more about themselves and develop the tools needed to build more inclusive, responsive communities at their individual schools.

The summer STAMP Camps provide high school students with more intensive and experiential learning opportunities to support them in their transformational leadership development. All camp participants learn directly from community leaders, partake in hands-on activities within communities addressing issues related to social justice, and develop a ‘toolkit’ they can use to further equity across their own communities.

STAMP Youth Leadership Council 

Year Round Student Leaders Amplifying Youth Voices

The year-round STAMP Youth Leadership Council (YLC) amplifies and centers youth voices, perspectives, and ideas in all aspects of the CIRCLE organization and equips young people with the tools to create positive, lasting change within their communities.

The YLC is for STAMP high school student leaders who want to support CIRCLE through programmatic decision making, peer-to-peer engagement, and the facilitation of inclusive, transformational learning offerings for both youth and adults. 

STAMP Student Leaders Share Impact:

  • Being a STAMP leader was life changing!
  • This experience gave me the chance to be with other high school students from across Denver.
  • We worked together to make a difference and I think we did make a difference!
  • Because of this conference experience I will work to be more of an upstander in my community, and be more of a leader.
