Developing Tomorrow's Talent
Youth graduate from high school ready for post-secondary education and entry into the workforce
Metro Denver is growing, and we are not nurturing the talented and educated workforce needed to support that growth. That means our community must import workers from around the country and the world to keep up, while many young people raised here find themselves under-skilled and out of work. Why are we importing a workforce rather than giving our own young students those opportunities?
By helping kids reach their academic potential, we will build a Metro Denver workforce that is thriving and bursting with talent. Metro Denver needs to graduate more high school students who have marketable skills, love learning, and are prepared to move forward into college or a career. Because when the youth of our community is strong, Denver is stronger.
