Creating a Culture of Belonging For Colorado Youth
At the Kiva Center, we believe every young person can flourish.
A Community of
Learning & Transformation
Kiva builds confidence and self-esteem in youth through nature connection. Our approach is to provide transformational educational experiences and a place of community and belonging for diverse learners.
After School Program
Students explore the outdoor spaces in their local community and engage in group activities that encourage friendship, health, community service and fun!
The Kiva Center helps educators support students’ need to have a practical application for academic learning. We provide standards-based workshops in life skills, environmental stewardship, and nature connection.
A nurturing, soulful, and fun place for children to spend their days. A well-balanced program for both the inner and outer lives of little ones, while offering opportunities for parents to connect.

The Kiva Philosophy
At The Kiva Center, children are granted the opportunity to enjoy the gifts of this Earth without the interruption of screens, just as their parents did, just as our ancestors have for thousands of years. If we hope for the youth to develop their innate connection to the natural world and to each other, we must provide them with the experiences to fall in love with nature together, just as we did when we were young.
