Youth Initiative Project


The Mission of the Chris Anthony Youth Initiative Project is to improve quality of life through introducing youth to educational enrichment opportunities.

The Youth Initiative Project started with school visits over 19 years ago when Chris Anthony was asked to be a youth mentor for Colorado Ski Country.   Chris developed a classroom program that has been seen by over 70,000 students in that time period. The school visits are the staple of the Youth Initiative Project. In 2013 the project obtained tax-exempt status and now has added two more components to the mission statement.  The first is the scholarship program where financial aid is awarded for beyond the classroom experiential educational opportunities.  The second is building educational tools.

In the first three years under the watchful eye of the Colorado Non Profit Development Center the Chris Anthony Youth Initiative Project has reached 20,369 students
