UpLift Annual Report




The Crisis

The number of kids at risk in the city of Denver continues to grow. They face severe challenges every day, given their economic and academic disadvantages. The current high school graduation rate in Denver is only 60%, with an estimated cost to society of $2 million for every student who does not graduate. With 60,000 kids at risk, this is a major crisis. Colorado UpLift is the solution.

The Solution

Colorado UpLift uses a unique approach that produces exceptional results beginning with full-time staff who are committed to the students they serve. As teachers, mentors and life coaches, they develop long-term relationships as early as elementary school. This bond continues over multiple years through middle and high school, providing the relational support that is missing from their lives. The impact is life changing.
