Scholars Unlimited’s 25th Anniversary Celebration
We're celebrating! In the summer of 1993, one dedicated volunteer at Hallett Elementary School put together a literacy tutoring program for 20 young students who were struggling readers.

So much has changed in Denver over the past 25 years -- but what has remained constant at Scholars Unlimited is that we are unlimited in our commitment to helping young students build foundations for academic and personal success. Unlimited in our belief that the children we serve can reach their full potential. Unlimited in our gratitude for all of the community partners and donors who have helped thousands of scholars over the past 25 years. And unlimited in our excitement as we look forward to our future. JOIN US on September 27, 2018 at History Colorado to celebrate the success of this program and help us look forward to elevating the future for children in our community!
