One Colorado Safe Schools Program
One Colorado Education Fund’s (OCEF) Safe Schools program works to ensure all students can be out, safe, and respected in all schools across Colorado.
According to the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), the most vital steps to provide a safe, inclusive, and positive educational experience include supporting gay-straight alliances, providing professional development for school staff on LGBTQ student issues, and increasing student access to LGBTQ-inclusive curricular resources.
Since 2010, OCEF has helped to create, and continues to support, the programming of 230 gay-straight alliances throughout the state -- making Colorado the 3rd largest GSA network in the nation.

AT&T is partnering with City Year Denver to sponsor a team of AmeriCorps members implementing City Year’s Whole School Whole Child student intervention model.
