In 2011 and into 2012, ExecConnect became a part of the education reform arena - listening to all parties involved such as Teach For America and each Denver Public Schools Superintendent and determined where we could best focus our efforts as a group to make a difference with measurable results. These conversations led us to our most recent initiative with a Turnaround School, Collegiate Prep Academy. For the Spring of 2012 and the 2012-2013 school year, ExecConnect worked with the Freshman into Sophomore year CPA class. With about 100 potential students looking for mentorships, we put together this program so students could find out what they want to be when they grow up and how to get there. Due to unforseen changes at CPA, ExecConnect has tabled this initiative as a group however, mentors are individually still involved with students.
In 2010, ExecConnect partnered with Denver Bike Share to launch its initiative in Denver-metro area by assisting with the logistics portion of the work needed to be done in order for each targeted station to be succesful.
