Garden of the Gods Clean Up
On October 15, 2011 CU's Mortar Board chapter traveled to Colorado Springs to help restore the beautiful Garden of the Gods State Park. Mortar Board chapters from Colorado College, Colorado State University, University of Northern Colorado, Denver University, Utah University, and Wyoming University all joined to have a successful day. Groups worked on restoring vegetation, building stair cases and access trails for park visitors.
I Have A Dream Foundation
Next Semester, the members of CU's Mortar Board chapter will be volunteering with the I Have A Dream Foundation in Boulder. The mission of the "I Have a Dream" program is to motivate and empower children from low-income communities to reach their education and career goals by providing a long-term intervention program of mentoring, tutoring, and cultural enrichment. Upon graduation from high school, each Dreamer is eligible to receive a last-dollar, four-year tuition-assistance scholarship for college or vocational school." We will be engaging with students by hanging out with them in after school programs and tutoring sessions. Visit the I Have a Dream Foundation website at:
