Metro Regional Council narrows focus to serve middle school students

The newly formed Metro Regional Council will help El Pomar further expand its impact in Colorado’s most populous region.

In its infancy, the Metro Council has been working to identify specific needs in the densely populated Denver-Metro region.  The Council started with an interest in education, specifically early childhood education and high school graduation rates, however after conducting research, realized that the greatest need lies within the middle school population.  By narrowing the focus, the Council gathered information on organizations in the metro region that are working to address the needs of middle school students.  Summer programs and after-school programs seem to be the most common and effective way to serve the population and the Council is in the process of identifying specific organizations and learning more about potentially creating an impactful partnership.  The Metro Regional Council intends to be able to work closely with these organizations to develop goals and objectives and make a grant that will have a lasting impact on the lives of middle school students.
