Volunteer Opportunities 

WE need YOU!
Share your time and talent with Coloradans for Nebraska as we raise funds to provide scholarships to Colorado High School Graduates attending the University of Nebraska.
Volunteers are needed for chapter tasks, as well as for 2016 Watch Sites during the football season. Right now we only have volunteers for Swingers for a portion of the year and for Benders for the full year.  
With your help, our chapter can become even stronger and help more students with scholarships.

Please email Wendy at to discuss how you can help!
