About Corps for a Change
Corps for a Change has been in operation since the 2014/15 school year. Colorado Youth for a Change began Corps for a Change as a way to serve more students in the Denver metro area as well as expand services to additional communities. By focusing on attendance support, Corps for a Change is able to offer another area of services to youth who are at risk of dropping out of school.
