School & Education Programs
We have provided courses at school districts, alternative schools and treatment centers to help students learn skills to build strong and healthy relationships, manage emotions, make responsible decisions and develop concern for others. Courses involve a combination of expressive arts, journaling, story-telling and animals. For more specific information, refer to our Ethics Project Report.
CBR YouthConnect has provided counseling, courses and support to youth at risk of dropping out and works to improve their likelihood of graduating from high school. These youth are unlikely to graduate from college and have higher rates of suicide, homelessness, unemployment and teen pregnancy. We do not currently have any of these courses running, but will work with schools and grantors to develop programs that best suit the needs of a school or group.
STORY is a class that provided youth with the opportunity to reflect on their personal story and the stories of those around them. Youth learned to discover and express their story through creative projects using iPad apps for music, art, journaling, story boarding and movies. Students also learned about the ten principals of the Code of the West. The program was provided in partnership with Cherry Creek School District, Denver Public School District, Denver Juvenile Diversion, GOAL Academy and Community Reach Center.
