Work/Volunteer Opportunities

Discover the power of an hour! Become a CAP Mentor today! The Child Advancement Project (CAP) matches adult volunteers from the community with children in Bozeman and Big Sky Public Schools. These mentors work one-on-one with students in grades K-12 to provide support and encouragement. Mentors help students discover and build upon their individual strengths, and affirm student’s ability to shape their own futures. CAP is a school-based program, so mentors go to the schools to work with a student for one hour, once a week.

  • CAP mentors are screened, trained and supervised by professional CAP Coordinators, establishing a community of volunteers who are engaged in the local school system and invested in the future of their community.
  • Thrive’s locally designed CAP program is now part of the National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices, a highly-regarded standing indicating the program's proven effectiveness in creating positive outcomes for children.

We need 200 more mentors for the 2017-2018 school year. Click HERE to apply! You can also visit our website for more information: www.allthrive.org
