Volunteerism

Community service and volunteer work are not only rewarding ways to do something good, but also provide wonderful educational, professional and personal growth opportunities.

Giving Back: A Guidebook for Volunteerism and Community Service (PDF) by the Davidson Institute for Talent Development provides resources, strategies and valuable information for gifted students and their parents to think about when considering the who, what, where, when, how and why questions associated with Giving Back.

Extensive guides written by the Davidson Institute professionals have been specially designed to assist families in finding the most appropriate educational setting for their exceptionally bright child. Through a wide variety of articles and tools, families are guided through a process for implementing their decisions effectively.

These guidebooks can be downloaded at no cost.

Patrick Taylor Straut Scholarship

JAGC is accepting tax-deductible donations to support the Patrick Taylor Straut scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded to graduate(s) of the PEAK program at Wheat Ridge High School. The scholarship recognizes the achievement of high school graduation for a deserving Senior each year. The PEAK Program at Wheat Ridge High School was chosen by the Straut family because Patrick’s unmet needs as a high school student were his mother’s catalyst toward activism to gain awareness for the struggles of gifted students who had few real GT options at the high school level. The PEAK program was launched in the fall of 2009 through a combination of activism, education and serendipity. It provides the level of support and academic options that Patrick needed, but never received.

If you want to contribute, please send your donation to the Jeffco Association for Gifted Children (JAGC) at:
