Years volunteering: This is my fourth year volunteering with Flagship.
Favorite Flagship Memory:
In Cultural Art, a favorite memory was making sugar skulls with our club in honor of Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.
What do you enjoy the most?
My favorite part of Flagship is really connecting with students and seeing them get excited about learning something new.
What would people be most surprised to learn about you?
In high school I was on my school’s mountain bike team and we were the state champions four years in a row.
What do you do when you’re not volunteering?
As a future educator, volunteering with Flagship has greatly increased my confidence in my teaching ability.
Volunteer with us!
"The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention."
With over 2,000 Missoula youth participating in Flagship every year the gift of time given by volunteers in our community is what keeps Flagship afloat!
The Flagship Program recruits volunteers to lead or assist in after school and summer activities. To be a volunteer with Flagship means to commit to spending one day a week, more if you are able, after school from 3-5:30 pm working with students in a school setting. Volunteering with Flagship is a wonderful opportunity to be a positive adult mentor to youth in our community.
