Support AUL

This year, 155 students who had not previously been successful in a traditional school setting made the commitment to focus on their personal and academic growth at a place they believe they can be successful: the Academy of Urban Learning.

Founded in 2005, AUL serves students who have experienced many difficult barriers to achieving success at their former schools, including the challenges of homelessness and other unstable living situations. Now in its ninth year of operation, AUL has grown tremendously and established itself as a champion for at-risk youth struggling with unconventional backgrounds.

AUL provides students in these unique situations with the support and personal attention they require to succeed. The AUL story is steeped in our competency-based curriculum, our academic programs and the extensive wraparound services that support our students in becoming self-sufficient adults.

We build trusting relationships that allow learning to flourish. So while 90% of AUL students qualify for free and reduced lunch and 100% have received some form of intensive in-house wraparound services, we also have an attendance rate of more than 90% and are graduating an average of 25 students per year over the past three years.

You can stop by any time to see for yourself the difference we can collectively make in these students’ lives. We have an active volunteer Board of Directors, with multiple committees and opportunities for volunteers.

You can also make a donation to create life-changing opportunities for AUL students. For your convenience there are several ways you can give:

  • A direct donation through AUL’s PayPal account;
  • A direct donation via check can be made out to Academy of Urban Learning and sent to AUL, 2417 W. 29th Ave., Denver, CO 80211; or
  • View our Wish List and make a donation of the desired items (or donate toward them).

By supporting AUL at the $500, $100, $50 or $25 level, you are providing its dedicated students with basic needs, wraparound services, classroom resources, technology, more personalized attention and a greater opportunity to meet their goals. Support their hard work and determination by donating today!

 

AUL is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization and your donation is tax deductible as allowed by law. You will receive a letter of receipt of your donation for your tax records.
