Educational Counselors are the core of our program. They serve elementary, middle, and high school students, closely monitoring achievement indicators and social emotional development. Our Educational Counselors serve as advocates, giving our students the guidance and support they need to graduate. They are the essential bridge between school and home, connecting all parties – DPS teachers, principals, coaches, and parents – and finding holistic ways to give each student the extra support the or she needs to succeed.
Counselors are full-time, salaried Denver Kids employees, each managing caseloads of about 50 students. That’s a lot of names and schedules, stories and challenges to work through. It’s why we hire professionals with heart – a combination that makes all the difference.
