Access Colorado is a non-profit organization that was formed to support AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers and their supervisors in their collective efforts to fight poverty and improve student access to post-secondary education.
Here’s a little Q&A with our fearless leader, Melanie:
Q. How does BigTent improve the day-to-day functions of your group?
A. BigTent offers seamless integration of a calendar, forum, news items — plus widgets to link the group to our website. On a typical day, you’ll see a variety of professional development opportunities, trainings, deadline reminders, and other resources posted to our group.
Q. What are your future goals for the group?
A. Our online group is still fairly new, so I’d like to see us up the rate of participation.
Q. Aside from your role with Access Colorado, what keeps you busy?
A. I practice yoga daily, spend time with friends and family, and teach computing skills to adults reentering the workforce.
