Colorado Youth At Risks’ Annual Corporate Leaders Luncheon

See also

Colorado Youth At Risk (CYAR) is holding their Annual Corporate Leaders Luncheon fundraiser on May 20, 2014. This luncheon and fundraiser is CYAR’s way of raising awareness for their community programs, which change many of the Youth in Colorado’s lives. They also recognize some of the Partners who have helped them with their programs throughout the year in various ways. With the help of the Mentors in the programs they are seeking to make a difference in our schools with helping kids now-a-days, and in the future, to make better choices and to stay in school to get their much needed education to survive in today’s competitive work environment and economic situation.

According to the Colorado Department of Education the drop-out rate was 2.5% (10,664 dropouts reported) in 2012-13, 2.9% (12,256 dropouts reported) and 3.0% (12,744 dropouts reported). It is sad to see there has only been an improvement of .5% in the past few years. CYAR is striving very hard to decrease this percentage rate. With this being said please help how you can. Help how you can, if you cannot attend the luncheon or send in a donation, try to become a Mentor.

This years’ Outstanding Community Partners are; 1st Bank Holding Company and 16 Ways Foundation.

This years’ event is sponsored by Kaiser Permanente.

The event will be held on May 20, 2014, from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Grand Hyatt Denver, 1750 Welton Street in Denver, CO 80202. For directions to the Grand Hyatt click here.
