TeamUP AmeriCorps

Led by the United Way of SWCO, Team UP AmeriCorps places AmeriCorps members at various organizations throughout Southwest Colorado to focus on improving the well-being of children & families from “cradle to career”. Team UP AmeriCorps members provide direct service to improve outcomes in Education, Economic Opportunity, and Healthy Futures. For the 2021 – 2022 program year, members are serving at various Host Sites (schools, non-profits, and government agencies) throughout Montezuma, La Plata, Dolores, and Archuleta counties.

To give you an idea of the BIG impact that AmeriCorps has locally, last year, Team UP AmeriCorps members provided over 15,000 hours of service in our communities!
