At Denver Kids, we create career and college pathways for at-potential students open to growth and guidance by providing multi-level support to students, their families, and the school community.
We are on a mission to make high school graduation possible for Denver Public Schools students facing adversity. Through strong, supportive relationships, we position young people for success both in and out of the classroom. It’s been the heart of our mission and the springboard to the strong outcomes we’ve achieved since our founding in 1946.
For students challenged by poverty, outside factors often create roadblocks to their success. Once a student falls behind and loses their footing—whether that’s in elementary, middle, or high school—it’s challenging to catch up. This is where Denver Kids intervenes and plays a transformative role. Our professional Educational Counselors work one-to-one with 1,150 K-12th-grade students in nearly 160 Denver Public Schools to keep them engaged, in school, and on track to graduation.
