Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get the CCP program at my school?

We started our CCP program at Cotopaxi Schools in our first academic year, 2019-20.  We are currently talking with schools in Colorado as well as in other states, for the next academic year, 2020-21.  If you are interested in having our CCP program come to your school, please email us at schools@gusbeltfamilyfoundation.org or contact us.

How are the students identified for a CCP program?

The foundation works with the special education department at each school to identify students to participate in our CCP program.  A few of our selection requirements for a student to participate in our program are: (i) has an IEP, (ii) is in high school, (iii) has parental support, and (iv) has an interest in obtaining employment after graduation.

Testimonials

"Just wanted to let you know how awesome the Coffee Cart program is. Truly... I am overwhelmed with pride and gratitude and joy. Love seeing the kids learning these new skills. (and love the beverages!) Watching them grow and learn and gain confidence- it brings a tear to my eye. I totally needed a bright spot today at school and sweet Kelsey and Victoria and yummy tea were EXACTLY what I needed!"

"I just want to tell you how impressed I was with the Coffee Cart and their crew!! I was blown away with all of them, from being greeted at the door by Gus and WOW - he was an awesome greeter! To Grace and Troy for their explanation of how the coffee card works, to Andrew who helped me with where to pay as well as Nico answering my question as to whether the Coffee Cart was opened yet - he said "yes, come on in!" Everyone was engaged in all aspects of the business!"

"This program and the KIDS are SO GREAT! Way to go Gus! I love that they all thought to give their coffee cups to teachers with standing orders. I also love (saved it in my drawer) the nice note on a Wednesday delivery where a student wrote "My favorite kind of Munday". Makes me smile! Thanks for everything including my hot chocolates some afternoons!"
