About

Blossom Care Network (BCN) provides 1-to-1 trauma informed mentoring and coordinates services for Colorado’s sexually abused and commercially exploited youth. Using mentoring as the foundation we help vulnerable minors identify and develop their interests and skills, encouraging them toward lifelong success. Through the Blossom Center and community-based mentoring, BCN will fill the need that almost all sexually exploited kids have; the lack of consistent, caring adult relationships.

BCN Advisory Board members must commit to participating in a monthly board meeting where they will be expected to contribute to discussions and decisions regarding the operation of BCN, the Blossom Mentoring Center and options for expansion, but they will not participate in Board of Director votes. However, this position may evolve into a Board of Directors seat.

Ideal candidates will have a deep concern for the welfare of sexually abused and trafficked children. In addition, they may bring certain attributes and backgrounds that are of benefit to BCN and the Board of Directors such as: therapeutic counseling, education, fundraising, business administration, record-keeping, a deep network of contacts, etc.

Advisory Board members guide the overall direction and management of the organization, each engaging their own unique set of talents on BCN’s behalf.

  1. Meeting attendance
    1. Monthly Board of Directors meetings are mandatory.
    2. Monday 9:00 am conference call participation is expected, with the exception of weeks in which there is a Board Meeting.

As a seed stage, faith-based 501(c)3 nonprofit, BCN aims to build its’ culture around integrity from the start. We’re looking for people with a positive "git-er-done" attitude and an unbreakable code of personal integrity that follow through on 100% of their commitments. More than for ourselves, it is for the youth we serve that BCN must demand these requirements. If you meet these qualifications and want to make a positive difference in our communities and our children’s lives throughout Colorado, there is potentially a spot for you on the Blossom team.
