Get Involved! 

The Roaring Fork Schools invites community members from all backgrounds to be a community expert to students! Student projects will be on a variety of topics and require varying levels of commitment. Some projects will require a one-time consultation with an expert, while other projects will need ongoing guidance over the course of the semester. The student and community expert will discuss how often and through what means they will communicate about the student’s project--this is truly an opportunity tailored to the student’s and community expert’s interests and preferences. Please note that community experts who meet with a student four or more times must submit fingerprints and get a background check per the Roaring Fork Schools' volunteery policy. 

 Interested individuals are invited to submit their information through our community expert interest form (available in English or Spanish), and then wait for a student to contact you!
