Volunteering is one of the most least selfish things a person can do for their community and even for themselves. Not only that but they’re showing the kids that what goes around comes around and kindness is always returned in one form or another. Sometimes when you need to save every dime you get or you want to help out in a bigger way, volunteering is definitely the answer to that. Sometimes finding the opportunities you want can be a little difficult because you become overwhelmed and stressed. The last thing you need is stress when all you’re trying to do is help a cause or organization with a cause.
I certainly understand the frustrations and that’s why I am hoping with a small list of volunteering opportunities in Colorado. There are dozens of opportunities available but this list is only meant to get you started in your search or at the very least give you an idea of what is available for you out there.
American Red Cross of Denver
Now we all know who and what the American Red Cross so it definitely is always a good cause to volunteer and donate to. I don’t have to give much of an explanation on this one but the American Red Cross is one of the most genuine legit organizations out there and definitely one to consider.
Denver Rescue Mission
This is the Denver Rescue Mission and there’s a few opportunities here. Whether you want to serve a meal, be an intern or would rather choose another opportunity, this is a good place to check out. The Denver Rescue Mission is eager to help and it is a good place to consider volunteering at.
City of Colorado Springs Volunteer Opportunities
This option is a volunteer opportunity for parks and recreation, and cultural projects. With this opportunity, you’ll be given the option to help maintain parks, assist in coaching opportunities, adopt flower beds, and other opportunities. This is another good option to help save on resources and help your community.

Now this is a search option, similar to other options out there. You just put in your zip code, distance, and a keyword (optional), and search away. You should receive a good amount of results with this option if you decide to use it. I did a quick search using a zip code in Denver and got a good amount of results so I have no doubt this could benefit you as well.
Colorado Park & Wildlife Volunteer
This is a volunteer opportunity that benefits the parks, wildlife, and outdoor resources. The opportunities here will involve hosting in different positions to educational positions, and that is only naming a few positions available with this opportunity. If this opportunity sounds appealing to you, this is definitely worth taking a look at.
Don’t feel discouraged if you didn’t find an option with anything listed here, seeing as this was a rather small list. Colorado has several volunteer options for you and all you have to do is search for them to find what is available to you. Don’t feel shy about using any and all resources available to help you find the opportunities, that’s what they’re there for and if you manage to search, you’ll no doubt find something.
