DEN New Heights Pilot Program

DEN has partnered with the Colorado Department of Corrections (CDOC) as part of the DEN New Heights pilot program that offers employment and work experience to individuals exiting the justice system and transitioning into the workforce. The program is operated through Bayaud Enterprises and is managed by DEN’s Center of Equity and Excellence in Aviation (CEEA) and DEN’s Maintenance division.

DEN wants to partner with your school!

The Center of Equity and Excellence in Aviation (CEEA) at DEN is offering career exploration and community service support through the Adopt-a-School Program. This program is designed to connect DEN/CEEA programming community resources with schools.

Through this program, schools have access to:

  • Resources: Connection to industry professionals for career exploration to enhance your student’s experience and strengthen school initiatives.
  • Events and Programing: Rather than one-off events, this program offers a model for building a lasting relationship between schools and DEN/CEEA.
  • Increase Community Engagement: The School Partnerships Team will collaborate with DEN/CEEA to connect with the entire school community to accomplish the events each year.
