Sydney Bergen, Executive Director

Sydney has found that working with children has been in a constant her entire life and has served a variety of roles by being a nanny, a volunteer tutor for refugee youth and a teacher in the Denver Public School system.  She believes that children are our greatest teachers and enjoys their natural spirit of play, forgiveness and compassion.  Sydney has her Masters degree in International Relations and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Colorado.  Her nonprofit experience started in 2012 forming a nonprofit with proceeds benefiting school systems and providing scholarships for girls in sub-Saharan Africa. Originally from Iowa, Sydney has made her home in Colorado over the past 15 years and enjoys snowboarding, yoga, hiking, music and adventuring around the world.  Her experiences traveling to more than 40 countries have given Sydney a unique perspective on life; she gets the most joy out of igniting the curiosity of the young people at Realities for Children and empowering them to take on the world!
