Dario has been volunteering for the WOW! Children’s Museum World of Wonder in Lafayette, CO for the last 10 years. From the very start, Dario has done the accounting books, taxes, government reports and various other administrative tasks. He keeps track of all sales, donations, and expenses, analyzing the museum’s performance every month and recommending areas of focus to ensure the viability of the organization. He spends between 20 and 30 hours a month doing work for the museum and serving on its board as Treasurer. He has been President and Vice President of the board. In the last year, Dario volunteered more than 360 hours supporting the WOW Children’s Museum.

Dario is also in charge of the computer network, hardware and software selection, and helps with fundraising activities. He occasionally helps his wife (who runs the museum) by working on the floor to let customers in, installing new exhibits, performing building or exhibit maintenance and recruiting other volunteers. He wants to do his part for the community and is committed to ensuring the museum is accessible to adults and children around the area for years to come, regardless of income levels, race or religion. He volunteers at his sons’ schools, where he has been asked to come and talk to students about work, cultures and languages. He has helped Peak to Peak school with English translations into Spanish and French.
