Description

The Colorado "I Have a Dream" Foundation (CIHAD) was established in 1988. CIHAD is a long-term academic and social mentorship program for youth who live in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods and/or attend under performing schools in Metro Denver.

At the Colorado I Have a Dream Foundation, we believe that every child deserves a quality education and every child has a fundamental right to reach his/hers highest potential. Over the last 25 years, CIHAD has developed and fine-tuned a 10-year "hands-on cohort model" for our participants we affectionately call Dreamers. The CIHAD foundation has impacted the lives of 630 Dreamers through; mentoring, academic enrichment services, social-emotional supports, global cultural exploration activities, experiential learning, community service projects, internship and corporate networking experiences, collegiate coaching and tuition assistance for higher education. Dreamers are selected and adopted in the 3rd grade and are provided these services up and through post-secondary pursuits. CIHAD boasts Dreamer high school graduation rates that are double or triple the projections for comparable socio-economic youth in their neighborhoods. Approximately 90% of our Dreamers graduate from high school. Dreamers are eligible for a post-secondary scholarship and about 68% of our Dreamers have accessed the post-secondary scholarship and are pursuing a college degree or vocational school.
