Youth Opportunity Foundation (YOF) organizes and hosts two unique fundraising events each year, with proceeds benefiting Byrne Urban Scholars and The Bridge Project (as well as other kid-focused non-profits), all providing mentoring, educational opportunities and life experiences to at-risk youth. Our participants, growers and colorers are younger professionals who have the chance to meet new people, feel good about giving back to the community, and have a ton of fun.

  • YOF is a small organization, run almost entirely by volunteers. Therefore, it has very low overhead, so more of all donations goes directly to the beneficiaries.
  • Approximately 93 cents of every dollar we raise goes directly to the beneficiaries.
  • Corporate sponsors are able to gain exposure among a large group of active young professionals. The average age of YOF event participants is 35.
  • Our events are fun. And as such, it's a great way to network in a non-stuffy environment, meet new people and enjoy giving back to the Denver community!
