The Colorado "I Have a Dream"® Foundation (CIHAD), founded in 1988, is a long-term academic, social-emotional, mentorship and career-readiness program for youth who live in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods in Metro Denver or attend schools that have higher-than-average family poverty rates. Over the past 30 years, CIHAD has provided over 1200+ participants (who we affectionately call Dreamers) with a vast array of supports and opportunities that have positively influenced their life trajectory. Our comprehensive one-on-one support and advocacy model provides; mentoring, academic enrichment services, social emotional supports, cultural exploration activities, experiential learning, community service projects, internship and corporate networking experiences, collegiate coaching and tuition assistance for higher education. One of the most critical and beneficial aspects of our program model is the fact that these services are in place for students from kindergarten up-and-through post-secondary pursuits.
