As a relatively new nonprofit professional, I saw Elevate Denver as an opportunity to dive head first into the field. Not only was the program a chance to get to network with some of Denver’s brightest young nonprofit professionals, it also gave me a chance to learn in-depth about some of the most crucial elements of being a nonprofit leader. The Elevate Denver program was not only tremendously rewarding professionally, it also left me with an extensive network of ambitious new friends and colleagues to learn from and grow with moving forward.
