Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
At RAFT, we understand that kids learn best by doing. Providing them with hands-on experiences gives them opportunities to think creatively and critically, solve meaningful problems, and build relationships with others and the world. And guess what? Kids don’t need expensive materials to create priceless experiences. RAFT creates extraordinary hands-on lessons out of ordinary "stuff" that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Our unique business model brings together Colorado business, non-profit, and education communities to support teachers. Since we opened our doors in 2009, our partners have donated tons (literally!) of materials and thousands of volunteer hours to innovatively transform everyday items into fun educational activities. These experiences help children of all ages learn academic concepts and acquire 21st century skills (critical thinking, creative problem solving, and collaboration).
RAFT volunteers support education AND the environment. We have short-term projects ranging from creative to straightforward, as well as boards and committees who would love to have your help! Most short-term volunteer projects occur during our business hours, but we can accommodate large groups’ schedules as well.
