The Colorado Association of Black Professional Engineers and Scientists (CABPES) and Mile High United Way are creating change in Metro Denver. CABPES was awarded a $40,000 grant from Mile High United Way to support our after-school STEM programs to encourage and assist African American and other underrepresented youth in the pursuit of STEM careers.


CABPES was selected for funding through a competitive, data-driven community selection process by Mile High United Way.  “Mile High United Way is incredibly proud to partner with CABPES in this capacity to serve our community. In alignment with our strategic vision, we are proud to serve the individuals, children, and families in our seven-county footprint to ensure their needs are met; and we can’t do it alone. This partnership allows us to come together as a Community United and leverage our resources during an especially trying year,” said Christine Benero, President and CEO, Mile High United Way.
