Hosted by the community and held at the Idaho Springs Elk's Lodge, the 4th annual Colorado Qualifying House and Betty Marler Prom created wonderful memories for the students in attendance.


Many of the young students have never had the opportunity to attend dances or other events like a high school prom. These special occasions allow our young women and men to have an opportunity to participate in a moment that is part of their adolescent journey. Volunteers helped the young women with their prom dress and hairstyles. As the staff and students danced the night away, the young men and women never claimed to be tired but continued to relish the celebration to the very end.


As the night came to an end, students gave thanks to all of the volunteers and staff that were responsible for creating such a lovely and memorable evening.




Rite of Passage is dedicated to improving the lives of youth.
