we are Moss
We are by and for the Durango youth community, made to create more opportunities to build stronger connections between schools in Durango, while keeping the community engaged in policy to help teens across the state make sure their voice is heard. Created in conjunction with the Durango Young Progressives.
Meet the people behind MOSS.
MOSS was created by a group of politically invested teens who believe that youth voices must be heard in order for our democracy to function.
Started by students of the AHS class of 2021 during the sophomore inspire week in collaboration with Durango Young Progressives. We decided that youth in our area are concerned about the state of mental health in our community, and the lack of small town opportunities at low cost.
At MOSS, we work with local businesses to create opportunities for our young community. Instead of the usual school, homework, repeat, we create engaging activities while also providing resources for voter pre-registration for those over 16.
