According to the Colorado Department of Education, three of four jobs will require education and training beyond high school. Career and College Launch (CCL) promotes personal growth and economic self-sufficiency for local youth by creating a college-bound and workforce-ready culture. 

Since 2016, CCL has worked with over 400 students at no cost to the participants. The programming is delivered in the form of workshops, classroom presentations, one-on-one advising, direct tuition assistance, and an internship program. Students receive guidance and resources as they pursue colleges and careers. As part of the CCL program, BHA offers annual scholarships for students through a competitive application process.
