Volunteer

Interested in serving?

Volunteers are vital to the operation of The Success Foundation. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and depend on volunteers to complete the important work of our committees.

Why volunteer with us?

As a volunteer for The Success Foundation, you become a part of the District 6 family. On average, we have about 200 volunteers that help us year-round. We have multiple opportunities that range from long-term commitments like Board and Committee members to shorter commitments like event planning or day of support.

When you volunteer, you’re contributing to the kind of community and world you want to live in. Tap into your passions and interests and help empower students in Greeley-Evans School District 6!
