Mission

Post Title

Impact360 works intensively with underserved students in Denver public schools, from their sixth grade year through high school. Every participant graduates from high school and is prepared to choose college.

Strategies

These are what we do to carry out our mission

  • Support Academic Achievement—We support learning beyond the classroom through homework help, one-on-one tutoring, focused enrichment in literacy and math, and college prep support.
  • Empowerment—We nurture personal growth and resilience. Participants are able to make positive choices as they set and realize ambitious goals, practice accountability and contribute to community well-being.
  • Support a Healthy Life Style — We support a healthy life-style that is anchored in sport.
  • Support Preparation For Future Learning—Through mentoring, travel, service programs and financial literacy, Impact360 participants discover pathways to academic, professional and personal success.

Values

These are the ethics and principles we exhibit in all our activities and relationships

  • Respect—We honor the worth of each individual and we act on that respect by understanding and including different viewpoints and experiences
  • Effort—We set specific goals and work hard to achieve them. We commit to excellence and are accountable for our commitments.
  • Appreciation—We recognize the contributions of our team members—participants, staff, families, volunteers, board members and community supporters.
  • Concern for Others—Our decisions are driven by our values and made in the best interests of the participants, the organization and the community.
  • Honesty—We are transparent about all aspects of Impact360 and clearly communicate our standards and outcomes. We don’t cut corners and we don’t shy away from hard truths.
