RMSER Community Service Division
Rocky Mountain SER has a long and distinguished heritage of providing services that help families that need our help the most. As a long time workforce development & early childhood education provider, it only made sense that RMSER leverage its staff, facilities and premier relationships to offer services to complete our package of service to the youth and the communities that we serve. Our facility in North Denver, the Pecos Community Center has been a model for our expanded community center plans in Pueblo & Alamosa. Past Programs that have served the Northside or Lower Highlands section of Denver include:
Stafford Adult Boot Camp, Tutoring Time – Home Helpers, Literacy Lunes, Wall Street Workout Wednesday, Youth League (PAL) Baseball & Basketball game & practice facility, NO MO Violence Dance Group, Trent Jackson SR Fitness Center, Summer Scholar Athlete Success Camp (including 1st TEE participation), Urban Mentorship Group, TAP Program, Difference Makers Academy, Release the Beast Football Tournament, Real Training Track Club, Operations Christmas Good Cheer, RMSER Season of Giving, and many more…
All Youth Service programs are funded solely by donations and fees. Youth programs provide integrated athletic, educational, and social programs that allow individuals to exceed their highest expectations by enhancing self-confidence, building moral character, and through the development of personal goals —in the classroom, on the field, as well as in the world. Participants learn how to overcome personal, social and physical limitations, plus life lessons that will remain with them throughout their lifetime. Success is measured by each participant’s accomplishments in both academic and wellness areas and then ultimately by each participant’s return to offer service to those following their footsteps.
RMSER Youth Services has also hosted a couple of high profile events including the inaugural "Release the Beast” state-wide youth football classic, which attracted more than 26,000 players and fans from six different youth leagues. December saw the return of the popular Christmas gift giving campaign, titled this year as “SEASONS FOR GIVING” program for our 4th straight year of holiday gift giveaway parties, throughout the state of Colorado. Through the kind generosity of RMSER donors, close to 6,000 disadvantaged children received wrapped gifts in Denver, Pueblo, Grand Junction, Alamosa, Walsenburg, and Trinidad Colorado.
In 2014, RMSER Youth Services will be rolling out a program that culminates many prior success stories. This program has been named the RMSER LEAP PROGRAM which is a bridge program that enables gifted student athletes the privilege of premier training, education, mentorship and college preparation services in turn for meeting community service and education milestones. This program is truly unique and will start in the Denver metro area and hopefully expand into the other areas we serve in the near future.
