Academic Success Facilitator

I am assisting students in their recovery of class credit, through an online program called APEX. Due to the several classes that are going on simultaneously, it is difficult for me to give the needed one on one attention. The responsibilities of the tutors would be to pull the student(s) aside for 30-40 minutes in order to help them study the concepts before their subsequent quizzes. The goal is that each scholar completes at least one quiz each school day.

We also have projects for sales associate volunteers that can include: unpacking orders, setting/straightening up visual merchandising displays, inventory, etc. The ability to have volunteers on the sales floor as opposed to staff allow us to cut down on overhead costs and ensure that money from purchases can be reinvested in artisans rather than go toward staffing.

Education volunteers can help to prepare and give presentations about fair trade and Ten Thousand Villages to community organizations, schools, and universities. If you have a background or interest in education, this is for you! While these are established volunteer opportunities, we are excited to hear your ideas about how you may contribute.

+  Volunteer Fair Housing Tester

Sign-Up

The Denver Metro Fair Housing Center needs your help to obtain information about housing practices in our area. On-call volunteer testers are needed to play the role of homeseekers in order to gather information about the availability of housing. Testers receive a stipend for completed tests along with travel reimbursement. Fair housing testing provides an objective means to determine whether prospective renters or buyers are treated differently because of their protected class status in violation of fair housing laws. In a basic test, two individuals similarly situated in most respects other than the protected class variable being tested, are sent to the same rental or sales office. Each tester then provides a detailed written report about the experience to DMFHC staff.
