Volunteers

Volunteer With Us |  Never underestimate the impact that your involvement has on your child!

Volunteering Basics

Thank you to our volunteers at STEM School and Academy!  We wouldn't be here without every one who has contributed -- our successes are truly a group effort. 
Our charter requires a commitment of 30 volunteer hours per family (15 per single parent families).  
To help make volunteering seamless, we are using the software system, HelpCounter, to:
  • Set-up family accounts for volunteer requirements
  • Track and log volunteer hours completed
  • Select “interest” areas which will allow us to contact you with volunteer opportunities                                                                                  
Set up your account
 
     Volunteer Tracking System:
  • One benefit of our volunteer system is that when you sign in at the front desk, your volunteer hours will automatically be logged for you.  You will also have the capability to log hours from home.

Please be sure to create your account as a family (ie: Jack & Jill Hill)
If you feel like you will both be here at the same time and want separate accounts, please let us know by clicking this link so that we can link your accounts and give full credit when adding up hours.  

Also, be sure to let us know by clicking this link if you are a single parent family.



Opportunities for the 2014-15 School year are now available!!

Volunteers in the fields of Computer Science or Software Engineering:


We have an incredible opportunity to team with a nonprofit hosted by Microsoft to bring Advanced Placement Computer Science to our students.   The program, TEALS (Technology, Education and Literacy in Schools) is a grassroots program that recruits, mentors and places passionate high tech professionals into high school classes as part-time teachers.  The high-tech professional brings his or her subject knowledge and joins a STEM School classroom teacher (who has teaching and classroom management expertise) in a team-teaching model. TEALS provides training for both parties as well as course outlines based on successful college courses.


TEALS has accepted STEM School's application and we are eager to get an early start for the 2014-2015 school year.   A core element to our success is to utilize the vast knowledge base we have in our parent and industry community so STEM is asking for parent and/or industry volunteers in the fields of Computer Science or Software Engineering to help STEM develop the top Computer Science department in Colorado.  As a volunteer, you will team-teach the AP Computer Science course with a STEM School teacher certified in AP Computer Science.   Our goal is to hold this class first thing in the morning to permit volunteers to get to their regular daily schedule as soon as possible.   


AP Computer Science will prepare students to take the College Board’s AP Computer Science A exam in May of 2015.  The course is based on University of Washington’s CSE142 - Computer Programming I course which teaches Java programming. 

 

 

If you or someone you know works in the Computer Science or Software Engineering field and would be willing to help STEM School build a successful Computer Science program, please contact Sharon Combs at sharon.combs@stemhigh.org


More information about TEALS is available on their website at http://www.tealsk12.org and http://www.tealsk12.org/docs/TEALS_Program_Description_2014.pdf.
