TGIF is a program pairing CSU student volunteers with teens in the community who have a variety of complex needs. This unique program offers mutually beneficial relationships and learning for both teens and college students.  It promotes diversity and advocacy, and honors individuality and independence.  The TGIF community has patient, open-minded, and friendly volunteers who are committed to making a connection with community members with disabilities, and fostering a healthy, engaging, and fun atmosphere at each event.  On Friday nights once or twice a month, the community gets together to participate in social activities including scavenger hunts, bowling, Halloween fun, CSU athletic events, swimming, movie nights, crafting, fun at Inspiration Park, and, everyone’s favorite – Prom!  

Get Involved

Volunteers: New volunteer applications for the 2014-2015 school year will be available now for the fall semester.  Applications will be on RamLink.  The application process is first-come-first-serve, and we are looking for full-time students willing to challenge themselves, commit to the process, and join our unique community.  Previous experience working with this population is not necessary, though certainly welcomed. All applications are due by 5pm on Friday, September 5th, 2014.

Participants: Applications are now online!  Whether new or returning to the TGIF program, you can find the 2014-2015 participant referral form here. The application process is first-come-first-serve; therefore we recommend applicants contact us sooner rather later as available positions fill up fast!  Though we will accept applications on an on-going basis, we request they be submitted by 5pm on Friday, September 12th, 2014.
