The history of the Chris Anthony's outreach dates back over 21 years, starting with a relationship Chris Anthony had with Colorado Ski Country USA and later Vail Resorts. Through these programs, Chris reached over 40,000 students during a 16-year span.

In 2013, he partnered with the Colorado Non-Profit Development Center to create the Chris Anthony Youth Initiative Project (CYIP) and operate as a 501(c)(3). Since then, CYIP has engaged with more than another 36,000 students through his five platforms.

Collectively in from 2017-19, all the programs reached 6,258 students. Impact has been amazing!

"Colorado has always led the way in quality of life, fitness adventure and outdoors. The Chris Anthony Youth Initiative Project has taken the unique outdoor assets we have across the state and created a program the will further enhance youth education."
