Programs for youth and resources for providers … supporting access and opportunity!

The Office of Children's Affairs works with Denver Public Schools and other community organizations to better serve youth through out-of-school time (OST) programs that keep kids safe, help working families, strengthen student involvement with school, and support personal and academic success.

Youth in afterschool programs are more confident, stay on track to graduate and build trusting relationships with adults.
