We're seeking underserved and underrepresented talent for BootUp Camps.

About the Program

BootUp Camps provide non-credit training for the next generation of business leaders. Our BootUp Camps were founded by Lynn Wilson, chair of Business Administration at CCD.

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.

Financial Aid Eligibility

 Scholarships and financial aid are not available for continuing education classes; however, pricing is very reasonable and competitive with similar classes offered in the Denver area.
