ALG is an established Colorado nonprofit of 15 years created to serve the entire African immigrant community to help improve their quality of life. We do it through social, education and economic programs such as youth empowerment and public speaking classes reaching thousands of individuals. Every year during the month of August, we celebrate loudly and proudly the impact African immigrants have in the state of Colorado.
Education & Youth
I will continue to be on top of my kids to do well in school and I hope the school will do the same.
The class helps middle- and high-school students understand the basics of personal finance – balancing a checkbook, budgeting, understanding credit cards and how to stay out of debt, and beginning to save early for retirement.
If you ask a student like me how it feels like being placed on lockdown for a year and basically being forced to be independent and responsible for your own education whilst navigating the passageways of both young adulthood and high school I would tell you honestly it was hard, it was challenging, it was something different.
"I wouldn’t say things are back to normal, in fact I don’t think we know what normal is anymore."
The African Leadership Group’s 2022 Afrik Impact Celebration kicked off July 29 with an exuberant Youth Empowerment celebration at the Denver Botanic Gardens, with the theme of “Growing up African in America.”
As a parent I’m happy my kids were able to go back into school and be in person for their learning. I see the difference in my kids' learning compared to last year.
This year has been an improvement for my kids. In-person classes have made a huge difference.
The African Leadership Group has been chosen as one of 24 nonprofits from three states to take part in an initiative led by a philanthropic organization to “have a meaningful impact on K-12 students not just for short-term recovery but also for necessary long-term transformations of our education systems in service of equity.
