Program Overview: This is an emergency program for AmeriCorps service to help students in Southwest Colorado. We know that due to the pandemic, many of our students are several months behind in their learning. Additionally, a high percentage have become disengaged from school, and higher than normal numbers are experiencing anxiety and depression.
We have created Team UP for Schools to help our students get back on track. We are 9 school districts, San Juan BOCES, United Way of Southwest Colorado, Serve Colorado (AmeriCorps), Colorado Department of Education, and several local nonprofits working together for our kids.
Consider stepping up to serve in this short-term emergency program to help during this unprecedented time.
The kids need you to join our effort!
