“It is vital that we support organizations like ELK that educate the next generation about the importance of maintaining a safe and clean environment for our future.”
- Denver Mayor Michael Hancock
ELK (Environmental Learning for Kids) is an inclusive non-profit organization that develops inspired and responsible leaders through science education and outdoor experiences for underserved, urban youth ages 5-25.
ELK Inspires youth to have high expectations of themselves by exposing them to the outdoors and engaging them in service learning projects. For many of the youth ELK serves, it’s their first experience with the outdoors.
ELK Educates youth through science and environmental education embedded in all programs and activities, furthers students’ understanding and attitudes toward science, the outdoors, their communities, college, and careers.
ELK Transforms youth by endowing them with increased academic skills, civic and community leadership, environmental stewardship, and employment opportunities.
On Tuesday, December 9, 2014, thousands of donors will come together to support Colorado nonprofits. Check out our donation page on ColoradoGives.org to help us reach our goal of $10,000, helping ELK provide snow science programs this winter including snowshoeing and ice fishing!
