CYC Volunteer Spotlight:
David Johnson Jr.
David Johnson Jr. reached out to CYC to volunteer as a tutor at Denver's West High School in January 2013 with CYC Late Intervention Specialist, Amy Tedoff. He is a New York native and graduate school student at University of Denver. He is currently working on Master's Degree in Taxation and completing an internship at a local accounting firm. He wanted to volunteer so he could learn more about the community and the educational system in Denver. He found out about CYC through Volunteer Match website. David likes tutoring in math because so many students struggle with this subject, and he enjoys being able to apply his graduate studies to his current volunteer role.
CYC Student Leadership Program
CYC recently initiated a high school student leadership program to help keep students from the Outreach and Intervention programs engaged through the end of the school year. This programming will continue over the summer and take place at the CYC main office. The different programs include:
Finals Study Sessions will be held Monday through Thursday during the last two weeks of May for students to come and receive academic support at CYC as they study for finals. Students who participate in at least one day of the study sessions are eligible to participate in a Friday afternoon Video Game Tournament. The dates and times are as follows:
Monday through Friday: May 20th - 24th and May 27th - 31st from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
End of School/Graduation Celebration will take place on Friday, June 7th from 12 - 3pm at CYC. The event will include a barbeque and fun summer-themed games and activities. This is a time to celebrate the hard work of our students, honor our graduates, and have some fun together.
Summer 2013 Colorado Youth Leadership Institute will be an opportunity for select students to participate in an intensive leadership training and college and career-readiness program once a week for six weeks during the summer. Activities will include team building, explorations of personal, community and global leadership, as well as developing skills such as public speaking, self-advocacy, and critical thinking.
