Latina Achievement Support

A- A A+

Latina Achievement Support, or LAS, is a grant-funded program that supports high school students towards both academic and interpersonal success.

YWCA Boulder County collaborates with Boulder area schools on programs designed to close the achievement gap that often exists for Latina students. We offer activities during and after school such as:

  • Academic support and tutoring
  • Community involvement and volunteer opportunities
  • College prep and school visits
  • Field trips
  • Life skills workshops on topics ranging from drug and alcohol abuse to personal finance

Interested in volunteering with LAS?

Children’s Alley Phased Reopening

We appreciate everyone’s understanding as we continue to ensure the safety of our children, teachers and families of Children’s Alley to determine our reopening date. Based on the latest decision from Boulder County to extend the Stay at Home Order until May 8, we will be moving back our phased reopening to Monday, May 11. We have determined a phased approach to reopening will ensure our alignment with Colorado Public Health guidelines.  

Phase 1 will begin on May 11, with the partial reopening of our Infant Development Center (IDC). We will be contacting families directly who currently have contracts with the YWCA. On May 18, we will reopen part of our Pre-K program. We will be contacting families directly who currently have contracts with the YWCA.

We will not be able to offer traditional drop-in services at this time but we are working with Colorado Public Health to determine what that process will look like as we get further into the opening.
