Stand with our community for the
3rd Annual Day of Service
Twenty years ago, our community was shaken by an unimaginable tragedy when thirteen precious lives were lost and twenty-four people were injured at Columbine High School. In the aftermath, we leaned on one another for hope and strength and were overwhelmed with an outpouring of kindness and support from people across the world. As a result, our school and community came back stronger and more resilient.
Now, the Rebel Family gives back. We invite you to join over 1,000 Columbine students, teachers, and community members in remembering the lives lost, reflecting on the lives forever changed, and recommitting to the power of service in your own community.
Whether you are an alumni of Columbine High School or simply seeking to make a positive impact, we challenge you to make a recommitment: a recommitment to kindness, a recommitment to community, a recommitment to serving others.

On April 20th, We are ALL Columbine.
Columbine students and teachers will be engaging in a statewide Day of Recommitment by participating in service projects throughout our community on Saturday, April 20th
is to create a global movement of service and kindness to others and to stand in solidarity with other communities around the world who have experienced tragedy. We encourage you to put together a project in your own community! Engage in random acts of kindness. Organize a community service project. No act is too small or too large.
Are you planning a project in solidarity with the Columbine community this April?
From big things like helping to construct a home or volunteering at a pay-what-you-can restaurant to smaller acts like cleaning up a local park or handing out notes of encouragement at school, organizing service projects is easier than you may think - and it can have a huge impact. Did you you know that the estimated value of a volunteer hour is $24.69? Not only that, it is a tremendous way to recommit to kindness and your community.
Here are some of the things we'll be doing in our own community on April 20th:
Volunteering at local homeless shelters
Organizing and constructing community gardens
Offering a free workshop that teaches tech skills to senior citizens
Taking part in cleanup and restoration efforts in neighborhood parks, open spaces, and state parks
Meeting with first responders and showing our gratitude for their service and dedication
Spring cleanup projects at the homes of senior citizens
