One Team

We have some big news to share: Denver Kids and Denver Urban Scholars have joined forces!

Denver Urban Scholars and Denver Kids have long shared a common mission: creating a brighter future for the youth of Denver. We are excited to announce the coming together of these two organizations, which will operate as a newly forged joint entity under the Denver Kids, Inc. name.

With a combined almost 100 years of mentoring and youth development experience, the newly forged agency will benefit from the unique programmatic elements and outcomes of each organization; and will begin a new chapter with the intent of delivering improved programming and outcomes to every young person we serve.

You might be wondering why we did this.

It’s simple, we can do more for youth together. Teaming up allows us to operate with even greater financial efficiency and more specialized staff – which play a pivotal role in achieving positive student outcomes. Both organizations saw an opportunity to create unparalleled programming while creating long-term financial sustainability on a scale we can’t do on our own.

This is an exciting time for all of us as we look ahead to a bright future and the opportunity to make an even greater impact on youth in our community. We invite you to please stay connected to our work and this momentous new chapter by joining us at one of our upcoming events, listed below. And, we welcome your continued support as donors, mentors, and advocates to help us bolster outcomes and broaden opportunities for young people in our community.

We invite you to learn more!
In the coming weeks, we’ll be hosting an open house and a series of Town Hall conference calls that will provide even more details about our coming together and what the future holds. Mark your calendars and register below.
