Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Hi. We’re a college access mentoring non-profit that helps high-achieving low-income students get into college. And we're 100% successful: that means *every* graduate of our program has gotten into a four-year college or university WITH scholarships.
The reason we're so successful -- 100% college acceptance WITH scholarships -- is volunteers like you. And they're awesome
Some of our teammates volunteer because they're focused on the quality of education, and they’re worried about the Colorado Paradox: Colorado is Top 5 states in the country in terms of highest educated population (74% of jobs in 2020 will require a post-high school degree or certification), but we're Bottom 5 in terms of graduating our own students (only 22% of CO high school students are on track to get any post-high school degree or certification).
Other volunteers work with us because they’ve progressed in their careers, and they’re looking for opportunities to give back, but they’re concerned about finding a way to have a direct, measurable impact on the life of a young person. They want to be able to sign up for a volunteer activity they can put in their calendars, show up, and know they’re making a measurable, tangible difference, and they're frustrated they haven't found that yet.
And some volunteers join us is because they want to expand their professional networks with a purpose, while giving back at the same time.
If any of those sound like you, let's talk.
