GET INVOLVED.

Denver CALC works with neighborhoods and residents to make it easier and safer for everyone to access biking, walking and transit in Denver. We do this by collecting and sharing data with communities and decision makers, working with Coalition partners on events and programs, and providing education and training for community leaders on health and the built environment.

CALC Micro-Grants

The Denver CALC Micro-Grant program is sponsored by Denver's Department of Transportation & Infrastructure in partnership with the Denver Streets Partnership and the Trust for Public Land. Through this program, we look to fund projects that promote active transportation and physical activity. We encourage organizations, residents, and businesses to think creatively about your community's needs and resources to create a "quick win" project that makes it safer, easier, and/or more fun to use active transportation and be active in Denver.

The Summer/Fall 2021 CALC Micro-Grant Program is now closed. Stay tuned in early Spring 2022 for the next round of micro-grants. Find more information at www.denvercalc.org/microgrants

Jobs 

We are hiring! Join the Department of Transportation & Infrastructure (DOTI)’s growing Office of Community & Business Engagement (OCBE) team!

Youth Advisors - Hiring 5 Positions! 

We are hiring five (5) part-time Youth Advisors who will work within a small team to complete projects, organize events, and conduct outreach/education regarding active living, youth engagement, and safe transportation. This position will work 6-10 hours per week on a part-time, on-call basis.

  • Are you a young adult (ages 14-25)?  

  • Do you live, work, or go to school in the City & County of Denver? 

  • Do you want a job working to improve your own community?  

Join our team! These youth advisor positions will work within either the Denver Community Active Living Coalition (CALC) and Teen Safe Streets (TSS) grant programs.  We believe young people are the experts in their communities and how youth move around them, and therefore belong at the table to lead and inform policies, programs, and projects that affect them and their peers.  ​
