City Year Denver works to build partnerships with individuals, companies and organizations. We find it most beneficial to get individuals or groups on School Tours initially to see hands on the work our AmeriCorps members are doing in the 3rd-9th grade classes. Throughout the year we host City Year Denver events. Please contact Tracy Valentine (firstname.lastname@example.org), Managing Director of Development, for more information.
