At Generation Schools Network, we partner with like-minded people, organizations, foundations, and companies who believe in creating healthy school ecosystems that ensure every student can thrive in school, work, and life.  



We believe that businesses should have a voice in developing their future workforce, and that students should have multiple opportunities  to understand the industries in their community, the jobs they bring, and the pathways to prepare for those careers.

Ways to get involved: host workplace visits, provide a problem-based scenario to solve in partnership with a classroom, provide internships, donate, or supply board members. If interested, please contact Wendy Loloff Cooper at



Throughout GSN’s history, investments from individual donors and foundations are what has made our work possible. We welcome the opportunity to have conversations about what we can accomplish together to ensure all students have what they need to thrive.

Another example of our work includes the development of The Student Success Journey website, a free online portfolio that provides access to resources, interviews with education experts, and articles designed to help those supporting students better understand and respond to the challenges students are facing.

Generation Schools Network is an approved Colorado Department of Education provider of Turnaround Leadership and Diagnostic Review & Unified Improvement Planning services.

Additionally, GSN hosts a robust AmeriCorps VISTA program, including subsites. AmeriCorps VISTA members are critical to the work of Generation Schools Network and provide capacity that expands our impact and reach.  AmeriCorps VISTA members serve full time for one-year terms and receive a stipend, education credit, and health benefits in return. For more information on our current VISTAs, click here.

Our past VISTAs have gone on to achieve great things. Click here to learn more about our alumni!



GSN comes alongside schools and districts across the K-12 spectrum - urban, rural, charter, innovation, public and private to provide innovative evidence-based solutions to help solve pressing issues that are preventing all students from achieving success.  Our highly experienced staff work alongside schools to problem solve, collaborate and design innovative solutions based on the principles of the Generation Schools Model.

One way we take action is by supporting schools with finding funding to do the work they deem most important to improving the health of their education ecosystem. To learn more about GSN’s complete menu of services, click here or contact Wendy Cooper at

An example of our current work includes the facilitation of the Colorado Rural Education Collaborative (CREC) with a mission to connect school districts across rural Colorado around solving common problems of practice. To view the CREC map and website, click here.
