Mentor, Tutor, and Volunteer Opportunities
Thank you for your interest in mentoring, tutoring, and volunteering with Colorado “I Have A Dream” Foundation. We are thrilled you are considering becoming a part of our family of supporters. All of our mentors, tutors, and volunteers will be required to attend an orientation session before engaging in our daily/weekly or monthly/quarterly/semester opportunities. At this orientation, we will provide you with all of the information and training necessary to support our youth and their families successfully.
To learn more about tutoring and volunteering, please contact Aimee Alcorn at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-861-5005. To learn more about mentoring, please contact Fernando Branch at email@example.com or call 303-861-5005.
Our mentor program is a one-year program that matches a mentee with a mentor. Mentees and mentors will commit to meeting for one hour per week for one full year. Mentors are crucial people in the academic, emotional, and personal development of the youth they are mentoring. We ask mentors to complete one training session before beginning the relationship and participate in ongoing training throughout the year with our mentor coordinator.
Our tutoring program is a youth-centered academic tutoring experience. We ask tutors to commit to a minimum of one hour per week. The focus of tutoring will be homework help and academic intervention based on individual youth needs. We ask tutors to complete one training session with us before beginning. Prior tutoring/teaching experience is not required.
Are you passionate about your career? Do you have a knack for gardening or painting? Is building robots a weekend hobby? We are looking for experts to join our enrichment courses as guest speakers. Volunteers will be paired with the course instructor to determine the frequency of your guest speaker series (once a month, bi-monthly, once a semester) that best meets your schedule. These courses take place Monday-Thursday between 4:30 and 5:45 PM or Friday between 2:30 and 4:30 PM. We ask guest speakers to commit to at least a 45-minute session on the day(s) of your choosing.
One-Time/More Flexible Opportunities
We are open to hosting other groups for one-time volunteer opportunities. Please contact Kimberlee Sia at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-861-5005 x100 to discuss the possibilities.
