Triunfo began in 1990 at El Centro and the NS Education & Outreach Center has been hosting and coordinating the program since 2010 in partnership with El Centro and the CNS Learning Community. The program aims to inspire students and close the achievement gap through the consistent, weekly, personal one-on-one mentoring in all academic areas. Triunfo is open to all students without restrictions, but only provides free transportation to students from Harris Bilingual Elementary School.
Because the program pairs CSU students as mentors with local, primarily underserved 3rd-5th grade students from Poudre School District, strong bonds form that contribute to the success of the program.
The mentoring takes place every Thursday from 2:45-4:30 pm September through May in the impressive experiential learning studio at the NSEOC where students have access to computers, printers, lab materials, and scientific, mathematical, and educational expertise.
