WAYS TO VOLUNTEER
Student Community Service: Students ages 8-19 can apply to help with an existing project that addresses the Sustainable Development Goals, or create their own one with a team of other students. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info about this program.
Fellowships: We offer sixteen fellowship opportunities for individuals who are eager to grow personally and professionally! Our typical fellow has moderate experience with the duties outlined in their role, has experienced one or several Dream Tank programs (but not required) and is currently in high school or college near Boulder. Fellows are expected to commit several hours weekly to complete their positions responsibilities along with flexibility for taking on new or unexpected challenges and responsibilities. APPLY HERE
Event Support: Volunteers are contacted when we need additional people power to help produce events such as investor pitch nights, fundraisers and more. People in this role can anticipate our organizations inquiry for help ranging from last minute notifications to several weeks before the event. This role might be best for individuals who want to be of service but cannot consistently commit to a significant amount and/or scheduled times. APPLY HERE
Fundraisers: Gather financial donations for Dream Tank during formal fundraisers and other events. There are no pre-requisite skills or experiences, only the willingness and ability to attend our fundraising workshops where you will learn about our Dream Tank and fundraising strategies to help you succeed! We ask that our fundraising volunteers commit to attending at least one of our formal fundraising events once they have completed their workshop. APPLY HERE
Workshop Facilitators: Work directly with our Mentors to promote Dream Maker’s participation in workshop activities, re-focus Dream Makers’ attention when they are distracted and encourage a positive and welcoming environment for all participants. Facilitators need no requisite knowledge about the content of the workshop, only the desire to empower youth through entrepreneurship and capacity to support our workshop’s leader(s). APPLY HERE
Mentors/Jedi Trainers: They create and lead/co-lead workshop(s), which are typically an educational activity, to teach Dream Makers useful and/or relevant information to their programs specific focus and their business idea or prototype. Mentors are expected to be intermediate to experts in their workshop’s teachings and are not restricted to any minimum time commitment, although we hope our mentors consider participating in additional workshops (*only expected to show up and lead/co-lead a workshop you signed up for).
