The Colorado Beautillion, Inc. (CBI)
The Colorado Beautillion-Cotillion, Inc. (CBI/CCI) is an enrichment program that provides personal development experiences and special recognition for Colorado’s premier high school students. Maintaining good grades, community involvement and integrity are an absolute necessity for CBI program participants.
The CBI/CCI youth are exposed to a variety of self-improvement sessions including topics related, but not limited, to: relationship skills, financial management, wealth creation, etiquette, post-secondary education, job readiness, health, and nutrition. The young people build peer and professional relationships, attend multi-cultural activities and are partnered with local and national mentors.
Finally, CBI/CCI recognizes, rewards, and encourages Colorado high school students to strive for higher levels of academic and personal achievement, participated in community service and to maintain a greater sense of self confidence and pride. By surrounding CCI youth with nurturing and professional men and women, we can work together to make certain we continue the legacy of outstanding character and integrity.
