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!
Applications for Thank Golly It’s Friday (TGIF) are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. All volunteers and participants are asked to make a one-year commitment to participate in bi-monthly programs held throughout the academic year (breaks and summer excluded).
The application process for the 2018-2019 academic year is now open!
