About Us

MBSK Colorado is a nonprofit organization dedicated to disrupting and dismantling the cumulative adverse childhood and young adulthood experiences that affect Colorado's Black and Brown communities intergenerationally.

Around the nation, a dynamic model for regional coordination of neighborhood engagement has appeared to advance positive outcomes for youth of Color. The "Backbone" model braids together vibrant, responsive, relational efforts of hyper-local leaders with the infrastructure of larger organizations.

At MBSK Colorado, we are working to improve the youth of color outcomes through regional and neighborhood place-based partnership efforts and community-based groups. MBSK Colorado serves as a state leader and backbone for our youth of Color and the various agencies, community organizations, educational systems, and business leaders across the state.
