Hawks Colleges & Universities
Welcome to the Home of the HAWKS!!!
The mission of the Colorado HAWKS is to create an opportunity and an alternative to gangs for at-risk, disadvantaged youth. We provide a year-round, culturally diverse, educational and basketball program for boys and girls.
The year-round basketball and soccer programs offered by the Colorado HAWKS are the vehicle used to mentor and promote success in academics and life-long experiences. The program draws youth who need assistance academically and socially to achieve self-sufficient and productive lives. The HAWKS have developed most of the top players in the state of Colorado and the nation.
Since the inception of the HAWKS, our organization has helped level the playing field for economically challenged youth. Keeping our student-athletes in school is our main priority.
100% of the youth that have remained in our program have graduated from high school; 90% attended college despite being first-generation college students and from single-parent homes; 80% of those who attended college received scholarships and most of those scholarships were full scholarships.
