Denver Urban Scholars combines mentoring, social, emotional, and academic support to ensure a life of choice and opportunity for every scholar.

Did you know 40% of Denver high school seniors won't recieve a diploma this year? And despite Colorado being the 2nd most educated state, only 22.9% of native born Coloradons hold a post-secondary degree.

Denver Urban Scholars envisions a life of choice and opportunity for every young person.

Mentors are allies in this vision by establishing a personal bond with their scholar, supporting the scholar's progress in achieving personal and academic goals, and by open-ing opportunities for new experiences that encourage growth!

The mentor has no financial obligation; the only obligation is quality time with their scholar. Once matched, each mentor/mentee pair is assigned a professional coach to provide training and guidance!

Denver Urban Scholars is a non-profit that partners with high poverty, high performing schools to unlock the potential of students facing added challenges by creating individual pathways to college and career.
