The Success of CYC

One of the great things about this time of year is that CYC is given the chance to share about all of the hard work and success of our programs experienced this past fiscal year. Of course, none of this work is possible without your support. Thank you so much for all of your contributions to CYC. You can see our impact in the community by viewing our 2014 Annual Report!

Thank you for Your Support

Records were broken on December 10th for Colorado Gives Day.  Over $20 million dollars was donated to 1,442 nonprofits. Thank you to those who supported CYC on this day.
There is still time to donate to CYC before 2013 comes to an end.

CYC Youth Success: Meet Kathleen

Kathleen began working with CYC's Student Advisor, Fred Lewis, at the beginning of this school year. She was transitioned to Colorado High School Charter from Denver Public Schools George Washington High School due to poor attendance and bad grades. Kathleen didn't think school was a priority and dealt with a lot of distractions. Fred helped her to prioritize school while helping with her younger brother and working at her family's restaurant. Kathleen now has 100% attendance and continues to be on honor roll. In the spring, she plans to take two college classes while attending Colorado High School Charter.
