Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (“VOC”) is looking for high school students ages 14-18 to participate in its Cairn Program, which brings together students with mentors and experts to participate in monthly outdoor stewardship projects that offer opportunities for environmental education and developing leadership skills. The deadline to apply is August 18, 2014. 

 This eight-month program ends with a volunteer project designed and led by Cairn program participants.

VOC will hold an open house for students interested in the 2014-15 program from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. on August 15, 2014 at its office, 600 S. Marion Parkway, Denver.

“Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado’s Cairn program offers a good balance of volunteering without the commitment of too many hours,” Eliot Meade, a Boulder High student and participant in 2011′s Cairn program, reports. “For students who are looking for volunteer opportunities, I recommend Cairn. By participating in Cairn, students learn about environmental issues, wildlife, leadership, team building and wilderness safety while meeting new people and having fun.”
