About Take Charge!

Take Charge! was originally developed by Groundwork Denver in 2011 with ARRA funding from the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment. It was implemented through partnerships with high schools, colleges, workforce offices, utility providers and environmental groups across Colorado. The project was recognized by the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education in 2012 with its Community Program Award.

Groundwork Denver is a nonprofit organization that partners with lower-income communities to improve the physical environment. We plant trees, we improve parks, we clean up rivers and the air, we insulate houses, we promote biking, we grow food, and we coordinate hundreds of volunteers to help. Our work supports the growth and development of local environmental leaders, promotes inclusive community development and ensures equal access to a clean and healthy environment for everyone.


Climate change is happening. It’s time for you to Take Charge! Using the Take Charge! tools, it’s easy to orchestrate any sized group of volunteers to go out and help your neighbors improve their energy efficiency.
