WHAT IS A KINDFUL LEADER

This is a great opportunity to get more involved in Project Helping! We can only make the impact we do with the help of passionate people who interested in leading events.

A Kindful Leader is an ambassador for Project Helping who leads one (or more) group volunteer event per month. You volunteer alongside our volunteers to ensure that the volunteer experience the day of the event is fun and engaging, resulting in a positive impact on the community and the mental wellness of our volunteers. Essentially, you’re making sure every event fulfills our mission!

OUR ROLE

We provide online training covering volunteer leadership skills, mental health awareness, and event logistics so you’re ready to represent Project Helping in the community.

Project Helping will find a monthly volunteer event that fits both your schedule and your interests as a volunteer leader. We ensure that every event we create is social, meaningful, and accessible.

Once we create the event, we do all the work to post, market and recruit volunteers for the volunteer event. We post every volunteer opportunity on our website, which gets over 10,000 visitors per month, and share every event to our Facebook page.

We also keep in touch regularly with Kindful Leaders through email and Facebook updates. We are here to support you!

YOUR ROLE

After you complete the brief training, all you have to do is show up and lead an engaging volunteer event.  Oh, and have fun!

Commit to leading 5-15 volunteers at one event per month. Events are typically 3 hours on a regularly scheduled day (i.e., the first Monday or the third Sunday of the month).

Here’s what you’ll do the day of the event:

  • Welcome and check in volunteers
  • Volunteer alongside with the volunteers throughout the day
  • Serve as the main point of contact for the day with nonprofit partner
  • Engage with the volunteers and build community
  • Represent Project Helping and answer volunteer questions
  • Take pictures and video
  • Wrap up by thanking the volunteers and sharing the impact of their service

After the event, we ask that you complete a brief event report so we can track all the great impact being made, and save the photos you took so we can share your amazing experience with the world!

NEXT STEPS

  1. Sign up below to let us know you’re interested. Someone will be in touch soon!
  2. Complete the online training. Training is made up of short videos and activities that you can complete at your own pace, and usually takes about 2 hours to complete.
  3. Tour the nonprofit partner and meet the contacts where you’ll lead a monthly event.
  4. Lead a monthly event!

Sounds awesome, right? If you’d like to join the team of Kindful Leaders, we’d love to hear from you!

Lindsey - Denver

I am an abundant thinker and entrepreneur who likes to serve the community to help others reach their potential. I have done things from a 2 week mission trip to help cleanup after the devastation of hurricane Katrina, all the way to working on 2 sober living houses as a handyman in the community. I know that life is beautiful for every little moment and if we get to share those moments and create value, all is better.

I am a graduate of the University of Colorado (class of '04) and a Broker Associate with LIV Sotheby's International Realty based in Boulder, CO. My wife and I live in Golden with our 12 year old son and 3 dogs. We absolutely love the outdoors (skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, road biking etc). We both enjoy meeting new people in our community and staying active with all of the exciting things Colorado has to offer.

I am an individual who believes you have to give to get. I am always inspired by those who are out making the world better everyday. Participating in a program like Project Helping allows me to be a little part of making the world a better place.
