WHAT WE DO

COLab and its partners support an informed and engaged civil society through:

We build capacity in the Colorado news ecosystem by supporting collaborative reporting projects, topical or timely peer-led networks, and individual mentorship and training by experienced professionals.

We help strengthen connections between Colorado newsrooms and the communities they serve, through a commitment to community listening and continued innovation to better serve Colorado residents.

We help Colorado newsrooms explore next-generation business models, design and share best practices, serve new audiences, and diversify revenue streams.
