Our programs at Colorado Youth for a Change address early warning signs of dropping out: entering Kindergarten unprepared to learn; lack of reading proficiency by the end of third grade and algebra proficiency by the end of eighth grade for young students; and chronic absenteeism and course failure for youth in high school. Colorado Youth for a Change also reaches out to thousands of disconnected and out-of-school youth each year, getting them back in school and on a path to graduation and postsecondary opportunities.
Bring Our AmeriCorps Programs to Your School
Colorado Youth for a Change’s four AmeriCorps programs place members in schools across the state to support early learning, K-3rd grade reading, 4th-8th grade math, and high school attendance and engagement. Members serve full-time August through May, with possible later starts in October and January.
