Many of our area non-profits have opportunities to get involved. Whether it is employment or volunteer opportunities, visit this page often to stay up to date on these needs in our community.
Dolores Public Library: DPL is looking for a new Library Board Member. The board meets monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of the month for approximately 1.5 hours. Additional time is required to review materials before the monthly meeting. Individual Board members may also spend time promoting Library functions, working on draft documents, and providing support to the Library Director.
Interested individuals need to live within the boundaries of the Library district, which is almost identical to the Dolores school district. They must also be able to attend the Board meetings, but remote attendance is allowed. The term of office begins in March and lasts for three years. Contact Diana Donohue, Library Director, 970-882-4127.
Friends of Recreation: Friends of Recreation (FOR) is looking to recruit new board members.
What does Friends of Rec do?
1. Offer scholarships to the Cortez Rec Center for low income families.
2. Raise funds for the scholarships through a raffle, rec center paving stones, and in the past a triathlon.
3. If funding is available, host additional recreation activities/classes for our community.
The FOR board meets quarterly for an hour over lunch.
Four Corners Child Advocacy Center: Join quilters, crocheters, seamstresses, and knitters from across the United States in bringing comfort to children in the Four Corners area suffering from abuse.
