Fox Star Challenge
Join our Student Body and become a Red Rocks FOX-STAR…VOLUNTEER
What is the Fox Star Challenge?
It’s a challenge created to help build brighter futures and community through fellowship and volunteerism. The challenge begins September 01, 2013 and wraps up May 1, 2014. Each month, Alpha Kappa Sigma, the RRCC chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, will offer our students the opportunity to participate in planned volunteer projects. You can be recognized for your efforts in more than one way, while changing lives, making friends and making a difference. Our goal is to provide 5,000 community service hours from the student body each semester.
