Celebration of Educational Excellence - Denver
The Colorado Department of Human Services is partnering with multiple organizations and community partners to recognize youth involved in the foster care or youth corrections systems who will graduate from high school, receive a GED or obtained a college degree this year. Youth will have a chance to attend a resource fair and get connected with organizations that can support their success in the future.
We encourage child welfare professionals, policy makers, family and friends of graduates to join us to help recognize these young people for their educational achievements. Click HERE to RSVP by June 1st.
