About This Organizer

The Mission

The Kiva Center exists to nurture the creative potential of young people to become ecological stewards and community leaders. The program was founded in September 2014 by a group of educators, entrepreneurs, artists, and families with the commitment to empowering the experience of life-long learning through community education. We believe that life is the lesson, and each of us have innate gifts to share with each other, and the world.



The Kiva Center, based in Boulder, Colorado is now mobile!  That means we are spreading our wings and "pollinating"  communities all across the Front Range with an ongoing love for learning environmental stewardship and natural living skills.  We collaborate with local schools, homes, farms, community organizations, and churches.



What We Do

We are a nature-based, experiential education community that offers interdisciplinary enrichment to youth and their families through local school outreach, homeschool enrichment, after school programs, family workshops and summer camps.
