Environmental Learning for Kids cultivates a passion in science, leadership, and service in a diverse community of learners.
ELK reaches diverse communities in Denver, Aurora and Commerce City by working directly with local schools, teachers and community groups by providing a wide variety of outreach activities. ELK is located in the Denver-metro area, specifically in the Montbello neighborhood. This gives us a unique perspective on the needs of urban youth and their families.
We are affected by the same community issues as the families we serve. Students attend day-long field activities that provide them with an opportunity to grow as individuals and to enjoy the natural world in an educational, adventurous manner.
We also assist young people in developing internal values from which they and their community will benefit. Through leadership development, meaningful mentorship and long-term relationships, we help students to become educated, active participants in their communities. ELK has established strong partnerships with community-based programs, foundations, government agencies and individual donors, which has created a sustainable organization in ELK.
