Serve Colorado empowers community-based organizations to meet locally identified needs through national service and volunteerism. Housed in the Office of Lt. Governor Dianne Primavera, the program’s work is guided by its collaboratively developed State Service Plan. The Commission guides the work in three distinct programs: AmeriCorps Colorado, the state agency of the national domestic service program; Colorado Reads, the state’s early literacy initiative; and Days of Service to promote volunteerism.
Along with these three programs, Serve Colorado hosts and participates in a number of events, including the Governor’s Service Awards, the AmeriCorps Opening Day Ceremony, retreats for AmeriCorps members, various literacy events, and more.
Wegner will be working with the training officer to hold outreach throughout the state of Colorado, conducting information and listening sessions to inform communities about AmeriCorps and better understand their most pressing needs. He will also be assisting the program officers, fiscal officer, and directors on days of service and annual events hosted by Serve Colorado.
