What is Denver Kids?

For over 75 years Denver Kids has empowered Denver Public School students to positively shape their lives, successfully complete high school, and pursue postsecondary options. 

Denver Kids' student-driven programming recognizes that each student has their own unique set of dreams, aspirations, fears and barriers. Their individual experiences have helped shape who they are and their vision for the future. Denver Kids supports them on the path to realizing that vision. Denver Kids believes it takes a holistic approach to unlock the full potential for lifelong success in every student. That's why their program integrates a set of essential supports, combined to make the biggest impact on the lives of their students. 

All Denver Kids students receive access to: 

  • Educational SEL Counseling: One-on-one relationship-driven support provided by dedicated, trusted, expert Educational SEL Counselors.

  • Social, Emotional, and Academic Learning (SEAL) Tools: Infused throughout everything we do, including our curriculum demonstrating SEAL skills through interactive online modules and assessments. Our SEAL practices support the development of identity, agency, belonging, curiosity, and collaborative problem solving.

  • College & Career Planning: Helping students explore a myriad of opportunities during and after high school, including college, technical training, and career exploration.

  • Financial Education: Skill-based financial literacy taught through an evidence-based curriculum designed to foster entrepreneurship.

  • Enrichment Experiences: Eye-opening experiences that enhance students’ curiosity, build leadership skills, and embolden their dreams.

  • Mentorship: Volunteer mentors serve as another trusted role model, helping students navigate new experiences, empowering them to reach for their future goals.

What is the Service Project?

The Service Project was born out of the generous nature of the AAA’s members and their desire to give back to the local communities in the cities where the Annual Meeting was held.

From 2011 through 2016, on behalf of its members, the AAA supported local communities with donations of thousands of new backpacks filled with school supplies.

In 2017, the AAA began taking a more global approach to giving back and helping those who may otherwise go without by partnering with ShelterBox. The donations collected were used to provide essential emergency shelter and lifesaving equipment to families displaced due to natural disasters or humanitarian crises across the world.

In 2023, the AAA is partnering with a local charity in Denver called Denver Kids that serves more than 800 students in approximately 90 Denver Public schools. They specialize in Educational SEL Counseling—a one-to-one, relationship-based, long-term approach dedicated to building character, academic achievement, and positive development of the whole child. Denver Kids strives to help students use education and the development of social and emotional skills as tools to create career and college pathways.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of children and families in the Denver area. The AAA thanks you for your donation to the Service Project!
