AmeriCorps filling need for mentors for La Plata County kids

When it comes to finding mentors, Big Brother Big Sisters of Southwest Colorado is always on the hunt. This year, the nonprofit group brought in extra, temporary mentors to work with students on the waiting list.

Usually, kids on the waiting list can’t come to Big Brothers Big Sisters ’ after-school activities. But this year, an AmeriCorps team is including them in the fun.

There is always a waiting list for mentors, and boys looking for a male mentor tend to wait the longest, Big Brothers Big Sisters Program Director Caleb Speas said.

“It is hard to keep someone encouraged every week,” he said.

AmeriCorps members are also working with students in Durango School District 9-R and the Boys and Girls Club , said Anita Carpenter, Big Brother Big Sisters executive director.

They are helping to fill the void left after funding for the school district’s Check and Connect Program through AmeriCorps was lost. This program started in 2010, and it provided one-on-one mentoring to help retain students at risk of dropping out and encouragement to engage in school.

Kids Klub job helps Madden decide on career path

— After an absence due to loss of funding for a few years, the AmeriCorps volunteer service program is again alive and well in Idaho.

At Kids Klub, Inc., afterschool program, that has translated to Grangeville High School senior Alyssa Madden being the 22nd AmeriCorps volunteer for the organization.

Madden has worked for Kids Klub since her sophomore year of high school as an employee, but applied for the AmeriCorps position in 2016.

“AmeriCorps is a great deal for Kids Klub because it offers a money match for a monthly stipend for Alyssa,” explained KK program director Kristi Keeler.

Madden must put in 920 hours of work for the year. In turn, she receives the monthly allowance and at the completion of her term will also receive a scholarship for the college of her choice.

For Madden, the Kids Klub experience has helped her decide her future career path.

Applying for Americorp. Any tips?

I'm applying for Americorp right now. I have moderate but consistent community service experience. I volunteered at camps, art museums, and community gardens throughout high school.


If you are as enthusiastic as you sound, I don't know how you would not be accepted.

I know many many people who have volunteered through Americorps just being a high school student, high school graduate or in college.
