Institute for Strengthening Families

En Español

Welcome to the Institute for Strengthening Families! The goal of the Institute is to inform Spanish-speaking families and caregivers in Boulder about youth and family substance use prevention, and increase access and participation in educational and service programs. Here you’ll find an events and class calendar, video library, and a comprehensive resource list about substance use prevention, all in one place.

Through the Institute, we hope to remove language and cultural barriers to substance use prevention information and programs, and foster equity in our Boulder community.


A calendar which includes relevant activities and classes being offered in Boulder County, including a description, presenter, registration information, etc.

Video Library

Access to free video recordings such as parenting classes offered by community organizations and content made exclusively for the Institute.

Community Resources

Links to current articles, services, contact information for community organizations, and any other helpful information for families.

The SEA Fund goals include increasing the number of trusted adults for youth, increasing youth perception of the risks of substance use, and lowering the rates of substance use and abuse among Boulder youth and other community members.
