Be a part of an amazing community of educators that ensure every student visitor feels welcome, safe, and smart. School Program Facilitators actively engage school groups through their entire visit to the History Colorado Center. Volunteers facilitate a hands-on, fun learning experience and work with students through gallery-based programming which involves facilitating a high quality learning experience at each History Station.
As a School Program Facilitator, volunteers get to see their enormous impact on students first-hand:
"Our school, Mountain View Academy, had an amazing time at the History Colorado Museum this past school year! It such a joy that the students got to experience fun and interesting activities about the state in which they live. Most of our students do not get to experience things outside of their neighborhoods, so the fact that they were able to see things they may have never seen before was very beneficial."
Teacher, Mountain View Academy
"Thanks for having us! It was an AWESOME field trip. You were such a great host / guide. The kids were engaged and learned a ton. The guide made the trip! The guide gave our students an opportunity to explore the beautiful History Colorado Center as well as gain a ton of knowledge. Without, our school would not have been able to make the trip and our kids would have missed out on a once in a lifetime experience."
Sean, Teacher at Kullerstrand Elementary
