CEO MissionFacility 01 700

Community Educational Outreach (CEO) is a Colorado Front Range non-profit devoted to providing educational resources that target low-income adults who may be at risk of being institutionalized. CEO outreaches to local community correction, drug rehabilitation, and community based facilities in an effort to help clients remain productive members of society. Through student-centered, individual, and small-group instruction, we assist our students in pursuing the following goals:

  • Improving adult basic education skills (grade levels 0-8.9)
  • Enhancing secondary education skills (grade levels 9-12.9)
  • Preparing for and completing a High School Equivalency test
  • Obtaining employment or improving job prospects
  • Improving computer and life skills
  • Achieving life and family goals

Community Educational Outreach History

In 1990, our founders recognized the lack of educational opportunities for inmates transitioning back into the community. At that time, there were no educational services offered to Denver community corrections clients, nor were there any local adult education providers specializing in meeting the distinct needs of people at risk of incarceration. CEO started as an in-house education program at Alpha Center, a transitional facility between prison and the community. With the successes at Alpha, CEO was able to establish in-house education programs at other facilities. Funding was acquired from the Adult Education Act, the McKinney Act, the Division of Criminal Justice, the Workforce Investment Act, Adult Education and Family literacy Act, and private and in-kind contributions.

Greeley GradsSince its inception in 1991, CEO has provided comprehensive instruction – including academic, life and job skills classes – to nearly 7500 addicts, offenders, and community members. CEO has provided more than 200,000 hours of instruction at facilities such as Cenikor, Tooley Hall Women’s Facility, Williams Street Center, Intervention Community Corrections Services, Independence House, Community Responsibility Center, Northeast Women’s Center, and Alpha Center.
