RFP: Credentials of Value in High School Page

Credentials of Value in High School

Request for Proposals

We believe young people deserve the skills, experiences, and relationships to live choice-filled lives. A credential of value for ALL high school students, no matter their post-secondary plan, empowers students to provide for their families, pursue economic mobility, and continue their learning and growth.

2023 Request for Grant Proposals

Proposal Deadline: September 1, 2023, 5:00 PM MT

In partnership with Ednium, The Alumni Collective: we seek to identify a cohort of four to six exemplar high schools, alongside their systems partners, across Denver, Adams, Arapahoe, and Jefferson counties that are providing a substantial number of their students with a credential of value as part of their high school experience. This cohort will work together to learn from experts and one another, expand their model to more students, collect data on their program impact, and with time, inform potential changes to policy that enable credentials of value for ALL high school students.
