Our programs are hosted by our partner schools within DPS.
It takes a village….
to provide high-quality out-of-school-time programs in our community. Thanks to all of our partners who help make our programs possible!
Since 1994, members of DPR's Community Recreation team have partnered with us to actively engage youth in programming that promotes learning, health, and the development of important life skills in a fun and safe environment. DPR generously provides staffing for Scholars After School, and a grant to underwrite staffing costs for the Summer Scholars program.
We've expanded! We're proud to be serving students beyond Denver, and look forward to expanding our partnership with APS.
We're proud to have been awarded funding via the 21st Century Community Learning Centers program. Our 21st Century grants, administered by the Colorado Department of Education, enable us to provide summer and after-school programs at several sites. Thanks, CDE!
