Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to develop the capacities of under-served families, increase access to resources and promote social equity. We see ourselves living out our mission through our emphasis on the experience of individuals and families. We believe that to be aware of the individual is a means to heighten awareness of everyone's capacities; and diminish low self-esteem, dependency and inequalities among all families in Aurora.
The three areas in which we serve the Aurora community are resource and referral, educational classes and programs, and assisting in the application processes for Medicaid, CHP+, and Food Stamps.
Within these three realms, we are able to create a system of self-sufficiency within our program. The majority of persons who participate within any one of our programs come back as volunteers, helping their own community members out in whatever capacity they can.
Our main area for volunteer recruitment is in our after-school tutoring program. High school students, university undergraduates, and other such volunteers dedicate a little more than four hours a week improving the academic standing of the children involved with our program.
