Environmental Learning for Kids

“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

“If it wasn’t for ELK I wouldn’t be as motivated to succeed. To me, ELK is a second family, a place that makes goals and dreams reality for all the students. It is 
a place where we grow to be great people and it pushes us to go further in life.”

- Deztani Sandoval, ELK alum

“ELK has given me, and continues to give me, the tools to help and encourage me to keep moving on during hard times in life. They let me know that I can become a useful source in our community and that I am important.”

- Dondre Smallwood, ELK alum

“ELK taught me that you do not need to be rich in order to give back to your community… you need time, dedication, love, passion, people, and the hope that one day your community will flourish and have the proper resources.”

- Cody Joseph Jackson, ELK alum

ELK teaches students about the real world, and we always have a great time. ELK has inspired me to chase after my dream of becoming an astronaut. The support from everyone is amazing!”
