Give Access

This season, we hope you'll consider giving to Access AfterSchool. Contributions will give youth of the Roaring Fork and Colorado River Valleys access to high quality programs that connect youth to peers and mentors; inspire youth to explore new opportunities; and empower youth to develop skills for the future. With your support, we can enrich the lives of youth, support working families, and build healthy communities in a lasting way.

Right now, you can double your impact!

All donations received by December 31, 2019 will be matched by a generous donor.

Make your direct donation to Access through PayPal.

By contributing  through Colorado Gives, you will have the option to cover any processing fees so that your entire gift goes to Access AfterSchool.

Thanks for your support!

We are committed to enriching the lives of youth,

supporting working families, and building healthy communities by providing high-quality after school and summer programs.


We envision communities in which youth are connected to their peers, families, mentors, and the community at large; where youth feel a sense of belonging, are socially and emotionally supported, are inspired to explore their interests, and are empowered for the future.


We believe that youth thrive when they are offered experiences that spark passion and encourage movement and creativity; these experiences develop skills that encourage personal growth, community connection, academic success, and an appreciation for arts, culture, and healthy living.
