The Buddy Program – – Become a Big Buddy and Make a Big Impact!
You have a meaningful opportunity in front of you – to not only guide and inspire a youth today, but to transform their potential for tomorrow. And, your impact can directly strengthen our community. By giving a couple of hours, 3 to 4 times a month, you can give your Little Buddy the invaluable gift of friendship. As a friend, you can provide guidance and opportunities for your Little Buddy to learn and grown. By showing up, listening, and having fun, you can help change a young person’s perspective for the better. Little Buddies are 6 – 18 years of age who are referred by teachers, counselors, or parents and are in need of companionship and encouragement. Big Buddies are responsible, caring individuals who act as a positive role model and advocate for their Little Buddy. Volunteer requirements include full-time, year round residents who are capable of committing to consistent contact with their mentee for a minimum of 1 year. The Buddy Program is especially looking for male mentors to work with children in the midvalley.
Two ways to get involved:

Junior Achievement of the Roaring Fork Valley - Teaching Volunteers
Immediate need for volunteers is at Basalt Elementary School
Junior Achievement is a unique non-profit in that we bring business and community volunteers into the classroom to teach grade-specific curricula focusing on business/economic/entrepreneurial skills; financial literacy and workforce readiness. Each volunteer is provided a program “kit” with all the materials he/she will need for the classroom.The time commitment for elementary grades is 5 visits to the classroom, approximately 30-45 minutes per visit. Volunteers can arrange their times/dates with the teacher to fit their schedule and can commit to once a week; two times one week and three the next; or all in one week…whatever works best. The volunteer kit is so user-friendly that the volunteer doesn't need prior teaching experience in a classroom setting to make a meaningful impact in students’ lives.
If you'd like more information, please contact Laura Seay at Laura.Seay@ja.org or visit www.juniorachievement.org.

Summer 2014 Volunteer Opportunities
Roaring Fork Conservancy - Filoha Meadows Weed Pull
*Postponed until later in Summer 2014 - Exact Date TBD*
Located on the Crystal River between Redstone and Avalanche Creek, Filoha Meadows encompasses one of the most unique landscapes in the watershed. Filoha, the Ethiopian word for hot water, earned its name from the picturesque hot springs and thermally heated meadows that create an unprecedented plant and wildlife community. Unfortunately, even the most picturesque places are not immune to weed problems. Because of the unique ecology that exists at Filoha Meadows, no pesticides or sprays can be used to eradicate weeds. So RFC is resorting to good old fashioned man (or woman) power to remove some invasive species including thistles, oxeye daisy and reed canary grass. Join RFC on June 19 as part of Colorado Land Appreciation Week for the Filoha Meadows Weed Pull. Please bring gloves, water, sunscreen and appropriate tools including shovels (some will be provided). Lunch included. Space is limited (maximum 15 participants). Email Heather Tattersall Lewin to participate.
