About


Come help support one of our newest Dreamer classes in Frederick! The students are in 4th grade and need academic and socio-emotional support.

The "I Have a Dream" Foundation's mission statement: The mission of the "I Have a Dream" program is to motivate and empower children from low-income communities to reach their education and career goals by providing a long-term intervention program of mentoring, tutoring, and cultural enrichment.

Program Volunteer Commitment: One day each week during the fall semester starting in September.

Time: after-school hours (3:30pm-5:30pm)

Program Volunteer Responsibilities: Volunteers work with small groups of Dreamers and support the program staff in carrying out snack time, recess, homework help, academic skills support, and enrichment activities (e.g. soccer, art, music, finance classes, yoga, relaxation techniques, journaling, etc.)

Ideal Volunteer: Someone who enjoys working with youth and is flexible, energetic, patient, and thrives in a hands-on environment that can be characterized as having a "buzz of productivity."

How to apply: Please fill out a volunteer application using this link: http://ihadboulder.org/index.php/volunteer/application

Once the application is received, a member of the Volunteer Department will reach out to schedule a volunteer interview.
