What is the Indigo Impact Initiative? 

The Indigo Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit committed to empowering students at low-income schools for the future and giving schools the data and tools they need to engage them. 

The Indigo Assessment identifies 21st century skills critical for job-readiness, motivations, non-academic strengths, and behavior characteristics. All students and staff take the Indigo Assessment; then everyone attends workshops explaining how to apply their unique characteristics for success in school, jobs, and life. 

Using the underlying data from student and staff assessments, we work closely with principals and executive directors to align the culture of the school with the needs of the students. 

Counselors also use the Indigo Report to guide students towards meaningful opportunities in and out of school, post-secondary education as well as helping to identify students that may need additional social emotional support.

Who do we work with? 

Indigo works closely with about 10 inner-city high schools in 3 states. Our advising program is woven into the fabric of each school so that all educators and students are aligned towards more personalized learning. 

Some of the inner-city schools using Indigo's advising program: 

Indigo also partners with Denver's Project Voyce, the Boys and Girls Club, Spring Initiative, Junior Achievement, and various local non-profit organizations. One recent project involves a joint grant with two local partners specializing in substance abuse and suicide prevention: iTHRIVE and ASIST/safeTALK (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training/Suicide Alertness for Everyone).
