School Partners Gear Up for September Challenge Days

August 25, 2015– Challenge Denver is excited to support our school partners in welcoming the Challenge Day workshop to their campuses this fall! Challenge Day is the flagship program of Challenge Denver and provides Denver youth with an experiential workshop and follow-up "Be the Change" programming that transforms school culture by demonstrating the possibility of love and connection through celebration of diversity, truth, and full expression. Challenge Denver is excited to partner with Denver-area schools hosting Challenge Days this fall to ensure the days are maximized to their fullest potential through differentiated, follow-up social emotional development for staff and students to carry the messages of Challenge Day througout the year.
