Volunteer Opportunities with GENESISTER ~ Boulder County Public Health

GENESISTER is a program through Boulder County Public Health. It provides comprehensive sex education at an earlier age, leadership opportunities, community engagement, and mentoring opportunities for sisters of teen moms. It is a fun program that allows for these young Latinas to be civically engaged and become even greater experts so they can teach us a thing or two.  The program is funded through a variety of grants and has a working permanent staff of five rock star women! We would like to invite you or anyone you know that might be interested in volunteering with us! The requirements to volunteer are as follow:1.  Individuals must have a general understanding on social justice and working with underrepresented communities. We want to provide a safe non-judgmental space for our youth and for our volunteers to connect and grow together.2. Must be able to commit for 1 year of volunteering (school year).

3. Must be able to provide a valid license and car insurance.  We ask this because part of volunteering may be transporting girls, and so you can be reimbursed for your mileage! : )

4. Individual must pass our background check and our volunteer interview. This interview and background check is to make sure our girls, staff, and fellow volunteers are safe, and a good fit for our program!

5. Volunteers must be able to drive/ bus to Longmont, where part of the program is housed. BUT there are some Boulder volunteer opportunities.

6. Lastly, the time commitment flexible – mainly -Wednesdays from 3-6:30, either every Wednesday or biweekly. Also opportunities on Fridays and weekends for when the girls attend their volunteer service projects (ex: habitat for humanity, adopt a road, etc.).

If you would love to expose young women to strong, independent, caring and amazing women such as yourselves then email Evy below! Some of the above requirements are flexible, so email and ask if you’re hesitant about something.  If you are ready to volunteer there is an attached application to fill it out and email it back to Evalencia@bouldercounty.org or to dkoehler@bouldercounty.org  -volunteer coordinator.

Pass this along!
