- Mixtape Vol. #2: Ednium
Welcome to Mission 1477, YEBO’s statewide storytelling initiative centering and celebrating the voices of people in our communities. The theme of this Mixtape is “Home,” six stories inspired by the Mile High City. Our partner for this installment is Ednium: The Alumni Collective, a nonprofit aiming to mobilize Denver Public School alumni as a powerful force to change the way cities educate and reinvest in its homegrown talent.
