Team UP - Afterschool & Family Engagement Coordinator
Led by the United Way of SWCO (UWSWC), Team UP AmeriCorps places AmeriCorps members at organizations throughout Southwest Colorado. While these members serve as part of a regional cohort and participate in regional cohort trainings and activities, they spend the majority of their term serving directly at a specific host site organization. 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. Team UP has been utilizing collective impact initiatives since 2015 to collaborate across sectors and promote communication towards common goals within rural Southwest Colorado communities. The School Community Youth Collaborative (SCYC) is a non-profit organization based in Cortez, Colorado that supports youth on their path to healthy adulthood. SCYC's vision is that all youth are thriving members of our community. SCYC provides youth with opportunities in Montezuma County through our life skills programming, out of school time programs, prevention programs and our gear lending library. SCYC provides youth with both academic and enrichment opportunities in direct collaboration with our local schools. SCYC as an organization has a flexible and supportive work environment that provides opportunities for professional and personal development. SCYC’s AmeriCorps member will have the opportunity to dive deeply into the non-profit world, work directly with youth, and engage in the Montezuma County community.
