We are pleased to invite representatives from businesses, public services and community organizations in and around the Denver Metro Area to our 2016 Exploring Impact Luncheon.

Just as the Denver Area Council has committed to the continual improvement of the lives of our youth, so have many businesses and organizations in our communities. Both businesses and community organizations throughout the Denver Metro area have partnered with Exploring and Learning for Life to expose youth to a vast array of industries and career paths.

Denver After Dark

Calling all night owls!

This is your chance to see what goes bump in the night. As some businesses close for the night, others are just getting started. Join us as we take a tour through the Denver area and visit the occupations that look at the "work day" in a different way.

If you are in high school and are interested in exploring the variety of careers of that work well into the night, then register now! Spots are limited and once they are filled you will have to wait for next year! We will begin the evening at the Colorado Adventure Point (CAP) with food and activities. After we tour the businesses in the area, we will return to CAP for snacks, movies and games.

We look forward to seeing you when the sun sets on Denver!

Register here to secure your spot now!
