Partnership Opportunities

Strength. Support. Community.

Students Draw Strength and Support from Our Community

It is no exaggeration to say that CLA/VPA could not exist without the support of our communities. It’s right there in our name! From the local to the global, a strong community is key to providing the strength and support our kids need to thrive in this challenging new world.

But a community is more than just an idea or an ideal – it’s a building block and foundation for the future. By becoming a business partner or corporate sponsor, your organization can play a powerful part in this community by helping to challenge, empower, and transform the students of today into the leaders of tomorrow.

Here’s how you can help…

Believe in the Mission

Since our founding in 2004, Community Leadership Academy has appreciated the generosity of others to help advance its mission. From the first $5,000 from The Denver Foundation, who provided start-up funding through its Strengthening Neighborhoods program, to the hundreds of volunteer hours current students, alumni, parents, and friends have contributed, to the recent contributions from investors and foundations, this support has provided us with the resources necessary to provide access to quality education.

 “One of the most prominent displays of support has been joining us in championing the cause of social justice. Words of encouragement and financial support have empowered individuals to prove transformation of local education is possible.” Ronald Jajdelski, CLA/VPA Chief Executive Officer

“I believe that education is the civil rights issue of our generation. And if you care about promoting opportunity and reducing inequality, the classroom is the place to start. Great teaching is about so much more than education; it is a daily fight for social justice.” US Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan

Support Scholars

Your generous investment in Community Leadership/Victory Preparatory Academies enables us to meet the ever-changing needs of educating young people in the 21st century while challenging them to become leaders in our society.
