Community Educational Outreach (CEO) was established in 1991 when CEO’s founders recognized the lack of educational services offered to Denver community corrections clients. At that time, there were no local adult education providers specializing in meeting the distinct needs of people impacted by the justice system. CEO started as an in-house education program at Alpha Center, a transitional facility between prison and the community. Since its inception, CEO has expanded its reach to provide education and employment services to adults with barriers to employment who have experienced homelessness, addiction, and chronic unemployment. Today, CEO partners with nonprofit organizations, community corrections facilities, and treatment centers to provide services at 8 locations within 6 Colorado counties.
We believe in giving our students the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty, addiction, and incarceration.
Our mission is to provide educational services
to adults with barriers to reach
their employment potential.
CEO connects with local community corrections, drug rehabilitation, and community-based facilities in an effort to help clients become productive members of society. Through the coordination of tutoring, testing, and employment coaching, CEO provides support to adults dedicated to improving their lives.
