Whether you want to serve as an individual or as part of a group, we’ve got a variety of opportunities to increase your impact as a volunteer.
Adopt a School! You can help support our youngest students and our Colorado Reading Corps program by committing to keeping a literacy station and treasure box within the school stocked. Receive regular updates from the school, and host an end of the year party for the students and AmeriCorps members serving in the school.
Host a Professional Development session for AmeriCorps members! Attend one of the members’ monthly trainings to speak about financial literacy, interviewing, networking, or other areas of professional development.
Career Exploration Day! Work with one of our Corps for a Change AmeriCorps members, or CYC staff members to organize a career exploration day for their 9th and 10th grade high school students.
Small Student Seminars! Coordinate with AmeriCorps members to set up a seminar on time management, self-advocacy, organization, etc. for a small group of high school students.
Reengagement Tour! Take a tour of a partnering high school and learn more about the complexities of reenrollment. Walk in the shoes of students by reviewing transcripts, understanding school options, and navigating the different barriers that students face.
