Our 2023 Tailgate Party was a huge success! We are so grateful for the outpouring of community support to help bring our event to fruition and to make it so successful! We raised enough money to continue providing more outreach and further our expansion efforts across the state. We also announced our newest expansion school, Colorado State University, which will open its Ram Scholars Program in the 2024-2025 school year! For those who could not join us, it's never too late to donate! Are you IN!?

Happy Disability Pride Month!

Did you know... July 26 marked 33 years since the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed in to law? Here at IN!, we strive to be IN!clusive of everyone, because we believe inclusion is powerful in all its forms. This month we recognize and honor the many forms disability can take, and we celebrate all the successes and accomplishments of the disability community!
