Combat Paper

Founded by Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, Combat Paper is dedicated to honoring the stories of veterans and active duty service-members by giving them a creative outlet whereby they turn memories into personal documents. Military uniforms are turned into paper pulp, and workshop participants “pull” or “create” sheets of one of a kind paper. PPCC students are encouraged to participate. Contact Laura BenAmots for more information.

Haseya Advocate Program

Haseya Advocate Program is a native-specific advocacy program working to address violence against Native women. Haseya's vision is that every American Indian/Alaska Native woman will be treated with respect, honored as a sacred being, and have a safe and peaceful life. Red Wind focuses on ending violence against Native women and works on a variety of local and national projects.

A volunteer working with Haseya can not only gain great experience but can also develop their resume. Haseya can be a reference for successful volunteers. For more information email, or by phone at (719) 896-2560 x101.

Junior Achievement

Local schools are in need of volunteers this coming month for Junior Achievement (JA) in a Day events. JA in a Day is a one-day event offered at both the elementary and middle school levels where all classrooms receive every session from a grade-appropriate Junior Achievement (JA) program. The JA experience uses hands –on experiences to help young people understand the economics of life. The goal is to open their minds to new opportunities.
