THE STORY:

COLORADO UPLIFT wrote -

Advanced Leadership is Colorado UpLift's Capstone program in which a select cohort of students  earn concurrent high school and college credits after school.  Many of our students are the first in their family to graduate high school, let alone go to college.  For most, the idea of a college education is out of reach. The opportunity for inner city kids to get a head start on college credits and gain the confidence to pursue a degree after high school can be life-changing.

In addition to teaching accredited college courses, the program instills leadsership qualities that our students model in their communities.  The program culminates with a service learning project, where the students travel to Tijuana, Mexico to build 4 houses in 2 days for homeless families.  This creates a unique experience in which the underserved are serving the underserved, and it's amazing.  These students, who come from some of our highest poverty and crime infested neighborhoods are suddenly coming to grasp a greater worldview of what poverty looks like outside the United States.  As a result, they gain a new appreciation and perspective. 

Help us to put a roof over a family's head, and in the process build the leaders of tomorrow.
