Mission:
Target demographics: Teachers, Youth, the Environment, Community
Direct beneficiaries per year: 2616 educators serving over 200,000 Colorado youth
Geographic areas served: Colorado
Programs: To learn 21st century skills -- critical thinking, creative problem solving, and collaboration -- kids need to be actively engaged in solving meaningful problems. RAFT is where teachers go to get inspired and find interactive, hands-on resources to help their students acquire those 21st century skills. RAFT supports thousands of teachers by providing them a professional, collaborative space. At RAFT Colorado, teachers find creative teaching ideas and workshops supporting Colorado's new education standards, as well as a large, well-equipped teacher workspace and opportunities for professional development. Many of our teachers work with some of the lowest income and under performing school districts across the state of Colorado. RAFT supports teachers by being green. RAFT gathers unwanted items from local businesses and upcycles them into interesting and unique learning activities. Last year, we diverted approximately 29,500 cubic feet of waste from landfills in Colorado.

I attended the grand opening of RAFT of Colorado. The facility is colorful and cheerful and there are many items to choose from. This is a "must visit" for teachers in the Denver area.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very professional, passionate and committed to making RAFT a success.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have a RAFT in every major city in the US.
