August Volunteer of the Month – Mark Gonzales

Mark wanted to volunteer for some time but like many people, he had a million different reasons why “now” wasn’t the right time. As part of his Civics Engagement Class at DU, a course requirement is to volunteer time with a local organization. Mark has a friend who is a mentor with CYAR and she speaks highly of us. He checked out the website – he really liked what he saw and read, so he made an appointment with CYAR’s volunteer coordinator…and the rest…as they say…is history!

Mark immediately became involved with the CYAR Volunteer Appreciation Event, and then joined the committee for the recently held 3rd Annual Possibility 5K. He was the lead volunteer for the course set up/tear down and he did a fantastic job!

We are so lucky to have Mark as a CYAR volunteer.

He is our ROCKSTAR!
