About the Program
BootUp Camps intend to cultivate the next generation of business leaders from unexpected sources. BootUp Camps are innovative STEM-based accelerator programs funded by the Colorado Community College System and organized by CCD professors.
BootUp Camps provide high-quality, high-demand workplace skills training to help students obtain industry-recognized certifications. Through our community partners, we also seamlessly connect our students with resources for academic and career navigation, childcare & family assistance, and financial support.
Our instruction is accelerated and career-focused with a curriculum tailored to project-based learning and work-based learning. All courses are facilitated by either college instructors or successful subject matter experts in their respective industries.
Our strategic goal is to improve and diversify the access and opportunities to high-growth, high-wage STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers, particularly for underserved populations like first-generation college students and minorities.
Our target audiences are students and non-students alike from ages 16 - 60+ who want to overcome obstacles to upward mobility.
