The Education Committee is comprised of dedicated Blue Sky Bridge volunteers who work on education initiatives with the focus of prevention and early detection of child abuse. In 2010, Blue Sky Bridge and Boulder Valley School District began a collaborative relationship to address child abuse preventively.
