Denver South High School Participatory Budgeting

Let’s raise at least $2,000 for Denver South High School!

Denver South High School in Denver, CO is launching its first Participatory Budgeting program. The seed funding is $1,000 from the FirstRoot School Fund. Our goal is to raise at least $1,000 in additional funds. Will you help us?

The program is being managed by KJ Larson, and inspiring and dynamic teacher committed to building life skills while engaging students.
