About

As the end of the school year approaches, the "I Have a Dream" Foundation is searching for program volunteers and interns for this coming summer at Thunder Valley K-8, in Frederick. Please join us for a few hours each week to make a lasting impact on over 50 youth.

The "I Have a Dream" Foundation works with low income students during the summer, to provide a long-term intervention program to more than 400 low-income students of all ages across the St. Vrain and Boulder Valley School Districts.

Program volunteers, tutors, and interns are needed from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at least one day per week (Monday-Thursday) during June and July. We ask that volunteers make at least a one day commitment per week

Program Volunteer Responsibilities : Volunteers work with small groups of Dreamers and support the program staff in carrying out snack time, recess, 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 .
