John Hand had a theory: for any problem a person might have, someone in their local community has a solution. To that end, he founded Colorado Free University, continuing a tradition that began with the Denver Free University of the 1970s and early '80s. Whereas the Denver Free University was created as a political move to make education more accessible, the Colorado incarnation sets its sights on simple personal betterment, becoming more of a learning network than a school. All of its teachers are independent contractors culled from the local community, and together they helm skill-based and enrichment classes for adults, spanning a range of artistic, humanitarian, and business disciplines.
Students can receive training in foreign languages or ASL, business or digital marketing, or acting, visual arts, or woodworking. The school's facilities also accommodate CompuSkills computer-training classes, which progress from basic sessions in computer operation to advanced sessions in photoshopping a ghost out of a family portrait. There are cooking classes, foreign language courses, and style classes, all of which turn out well-rounded pupils. The campus's 89-seat John Hand Theater, meanwhile, hosts intimate performances from local Firehouse Theater Company and Spotlight Theatre Company.
HalfHour Power classes boost cardio health and transform unfit physiques into slender and chiseled bastions of athleticism. Invented by exercise guru Howard Waldstreicher, the HalfHour Power program demands the agility and speed of ninja-trained cats in 30-minute workouts. After a dynamic 5-minute warm-up to ward off injuries and strains, the next 25 minutes consist of rapid-fire bursts of exercises that target the upper body, lower body, and core. HalfHour Power utilizes custom-made elastic exercise bands that provide extreme resistance to craft and sculpt muscle.

Another consistency is that each facility allows parents to drop off kids ages 1-13, whenever is most convenient to give parents an opportunity to select a weekly schedule that works best for their family.
