If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, here are some of the organizations that we partner with.
The 9Health Fair occurs in the fall, from October to November, and the spring, around April. The mission of the 9Health Fair is to raise health awareness and provide people with the tools they need to take responsibility for their health. This is done through free to discounted health screening services, that are too numerous to count. For a full list of all the screening options, click here: screening options.
Volunteers roles: Medical and Non-Medical Volunteers on the day of the event--no medical experience necessary!
To find a health fair near you in need of volunteers, visit the 9Health Fair website, or visit the RPCV event page to find out our next Service Project event.
Growing Colorado Kids
Growing Colorado Kids (GCK) is a place of safety for refugee youth where their strength, knowledge, and confidence grows through hands-on learning, community service, and educational programming. By collaborating with volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, youth achieve challenging farm projects that build confidence and community. (Mission statement from website)
GCK has been featured on Colorado Public Radio, National Public Radio, Food & Wine, Colorado Gardener Magazine, and some of the youth leaders even presented at the September 2016 RPCV meetings.
During the summer, GCK hosts youth at the farm on 3 Saturdays per month, and encourage volunteers to visit the farm. During the off-season, GCK continues to work with refugee youth, and volunteering during this time may occur during field trips with the youth.
