Description

The “I Have A Dream”/AmeriCorps partnership is the result of a collaboration between “I Have A Dream” Foundation (IHDF), Notre Dame Mission Volunteers AmeriCorps (NDMVA), and the National AmeriCorps Program. IHDF is an economic empowerment program, whose aim is to prevent high-school dropout and engage low-income students in post-secondary success through a long-term, whole-child approach to access education. IHDF is seeking applicants for full-time AmeriCorps positions with a September through July service term; The majority of these positions will be at our IHDF program sites, with a few positions in our College Department, Parent Partnerships and at our partnering agencies in the community.

The “I Have A Dream” Foundation has a number of active classes across Boulder and Weld counties, serving hundreds of Dreamer Scholars in the 1st grade through post-secondary education.
