Results & Supporters


Large bodies of research show that the lack of a high school diploma or GED considerably lowers a person’s employability and economic security throughout their lifetime and results in poorer overall health, unstable housing conditions, increased exposure to violence, and higher rates of poverty (Alliance for Excellent Education). In addition, data shows that one person who drops out will cost taxpayers $292,000 over their lifetime.

With the support of our community and school districts across Colorado, CYC is building future leaders today through one-on-one guidance, customized literacy and academic instruction, and educational access.
