She first worked with us as a Young Advocate in the Spring 2017 Colorado cohort, then as a member of the Colorado Youth Advisory Board, before serving on the National Youth Advisory Board. She joined the staff in October 2018 as the Colorado Organizing Coordinator and is now the Colorado Engagement Manager. In this role, she leads YI's Young Advocates and Youth Advisory Boards, as well as the Denver Youth Leadership Academy, where she trains diverse young adult leaders on public policy. Through her dynamic experiences with YI, she has developed and implemented direct and indirect advocacy programs built upon strength-based approaches to serve underrepresented communities. Cameron stays engaged with her childhood community (Pueblo, CO) by co-creating and running a local scholarship, the Leticia “Weda” Salinas Scholarship, dedicated to financially supporting students interested in pursuing higher education and reducing mental health stigma and youth suicide. She also serves as the Co-Chair of the Colorado State Youth Council (SYC), a sub-committee of the Education & Training Steering Committee of the Colorado Workforce Development Council (CWDC). Cameron graduated from the University of Colorado Denver in 2017 with a BA and from Regis University in 2019 with a Master's in Nonprofit Management (MNM).
