what we do

About Passageway

We believe that all graduates from any of our Rite of Passage (ROP) family of programs should know the pride and sense of accomplishment that comes from achieving academic and professional goals. Working with community partners and dedicated employees, the company established this 501(c)(3) nonprofit to make it financially possible for ROP youth to continue their education in community colleges, four-year universities and vocational trade schools.

Recipients have attended nationwide learning institutions, including Metropolitan State University of Denver, Arizona State University, University of Colorado at Boulder, Lincoln College of Technology, Community College of Aurora, Mesa Community College, ITT Technical Institute, Georgetown University School of Medicine and the Sturm College of Law at the University of Denver.

Since its inception, Passageway Scholarship Foundation has provided over $1,000,000 in scholarships to ROP alumni.
