Helping young people learn, grow and thrive, while supporting families with work-life balance.
The Denver Afterschool Alliance (DAA) builds the capacity of afterschool programs and professionals to provide high-quality, diverse afterschool programs. Through our three lines of service: DAAlearn, DAAconnect and DAAadvocate, we work to ensure that all Denver children have access to afterschool programs that keep them safe, inspire them to learn, and prepare them for the future.
