Mission Statement

Denver Kids helps students in Denver Public Schools, who face the challenges of higher-risk environments, successfully complete high school, pursue post-secondary options, and become contributing members of the community.

Organization History

In 1946, Denver Public Schools (DPS) and the Rotary Club of Denver partnered to form Denver Boys as a way to provide academic support, mentorship, and job skills for young boys who were dropping out of school in order to work and provide for their families when their fathers did not return from WWII. Denver Girls was founded in 1970, a time with teenage pregnancy and female involvement in gangs was on the rise. Denver Girls followed the same model of academic and mentor support. In 1993, Denver Kids became the merged entities of Denver Boys and Denver Girls to consolidate programs and funding.
