Team UP - Supportive Program Specialist
Led by the United Way of Southwest Colorado, Team UP AmeriCorps places AmeriCorps members at organizations throughout Southwest Colorado. Through collaborative service, Team UP AmeriCorps members develop their own professional skills and passions, expand effectiveness of southwest Colorado organizations, and ultimately support people to thrive. Each Team UP AmeriCorps member serves directly at a non-profit, school, or government agency called their Host Site. Members serving at different Host Sites are all part of the Team UP AmeriCorps member cohort; the cohort meets periodically to connect, learn, and build community together. Members are placed at Host Sites based on their specific skills and interests, as well as their desired location of service. We have both Full- and Part-time positions in a variety of focus areas. All positions require a motivated individual that is committed to improving the well-being of community members in beautiful southwest Colorado. Position focus areas include, but are not limited to: youth development, restorative justice, immigrant resource navigation, economic mobility, housing security, social emotional learning, and early childhood education.
