a promising future

A Promising Future (APF) is the life-skills development and relationship education department of Alternatives Pregnancy Center. APF was founded in 2001 as a response to the needs that were being presented in the young adults who came to the center in the Denver-metro area. Since its founding, APF has sought partnerships with schools, agencies and other youth-serving organizations in order to provide information that empowers students and adults alike to make choices that value their whole-person health and well-being. APF does this through educational presentations and curricula that assist youth in building positive assets and avoiding hazardous behaviors. Learn more about A Promising Future here.

A Promising Future casts a vision for our high school students and young adults that they can achieve their goals and dreams. Through our evidence-informed curriculum, The Diamond Standard, we promote positive youth development, social and emotional learning, life-skills education and healthy relationship cultivation. Our team provides classroom instruction, leads parent workshops and trains other youth-serving professionals in the implementation of The Diamond Standard curriculum.
