TGYS Board Membership Opportunity

The Tony Grampsas Youth Services Program (TGYS) is currently seeking applications for the TGYS Board. The goal of TGYS is to provide grant funding to programs throughout the state of Colorado for prevention, intervention and education in the areas of youth crime and violence, youth marijuana use, and child abuse and neglect. 

The TGYS Board is authorized by C.R.S. 26-6.9-103. Governor Hickenlooper makes the appointments for these positions with input from the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS).

TGYS Board Members may be reappointed for a total of no more than two, three year terms. TGYS Board meetings are held quarterly in Denver, CO. Board members are not reimbursed for serving on the Board, but reimbursement for expenses incurred in the performance of their duties may be provided if necessary.  The upcoming vacancy may be affiliated with any political party at this time and requires expertise in community planning for violence prevention.

  • Determine criteria for measuring the effectiveness of programs that receive grants under the TGYS program
  • Establish timelines for submission and review of grant applications
