Denver Kids is excited to share news that isn’t broadly known yet – we’ve identified our next CEO!
Denver Kids has hired Jay Grimm, who is set to join the team later this month. He comes to us after nearly 5 years at Denver Public Schools as their Director of the Whole Child / Student Equity & Opportunity department. He is an experienced director and nonprofit leader who has served as Executive Director of Aurora Public Schools Foundation and the Denver Indian Center. Jay is a Metropolitan State University of Denver graduate and a Livingston Fellow. Jay has played an important role in supporting the partnership between DPS and Denver Kids and has advocated for the organization and its students.
Jay has a great mix of leadership, fundraising, and programmatic experience. That, along with his passion for youth development and dedication to diversity, equity, inclusion & belonging, makes us believe that he’ll make a significant impact in advancing the work of Denver Kids!
In addition, for those who attended our Gala in November, they may remember Jay as he was honored as a Community Impact Award winner. Denver Kids looks forward to connecting Jay with Club 31 in the coming months!
