Kindful Leader

WHAT'S A KINDFUL LEADER

Kindful Leaders lead one group volunteer event per month. You volunteer alongside other volunteers and serve as an ambassador for Project Helping. Kindful Leaders 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!

This is a great opportunity to get more involved in supporting Project Helping.

YOUR ROLE

We will walk you through every step of training and on boarding.  Once you have completed that, all you have to do is show up and lead the engaging volunteer event we create for you.  Oh, and have fun!

We ask you to commit to leading one event per month. Our events are typically 3 hours for 5-15 volunteers 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 a point of contact for the nonprofit partner we are serving
  • Engage with the volunteers and build community
  • Take pictures
  • 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 share the pictures you took so we can share the amazing work with the world!

OUR ROLE

We provide online training on volunteer leadership skills, mental health awareness, and event logistics. Training is made up of short videos and activities that you can complete at your own pace. Training usually takes about 2 hours to complete. We wrap up with a live video call to make sure you have all your questions answered.

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!

JOIN US!

Sounds awesome, right? If you’d like to join the team of Kindful Leaders, we’d love to hear from you! The first step is to complete a brief (only six questions!) online (complete whenever you’d like!) interview.  Once we receive your completed interview, we will be in touch.

CURRENT LEADERS

I am a proud United States Marine who is currently stationed in sunny southern California. My original hometown is a cold rainy place called Delaware and the Corps has taken me all around the world for the past 12 years. I have had the pleasure of living in countries like South Africa, Japan, Thailand and Argentina, while visiting and deploying to many more. Outside of the workplace I maintain a part-time student status and continue to pursue other passions which range from learning a new language to advancing in various martial art disciplines. As a cornerstone for character and a building block for compassion, I believe in the idea that service to others is truly a service to yourself. I am happy to be a member of Project Helping team.

Ali - San Diego

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.

Jon - Denver

I am majoring in Business Administration at San Diego State University. My favorite meal of the day is breakfast. I love people's company, the freedom of choice, the practice of discipline, and sunshine. Dimples and smiles are my greatest weakness. Volunteering, without a doubt, always makes me feel better.

Jayzle-May - San Diego

Worked as a production support engineer for many years, I am now working for my husband who owns his own CPA firm. The rest of my days are filled with spending time with my family, including my two daughters Vanessa and Audrina. Enjoy running and snowboarding as hobbies, golfing in the summer, traveling when I can.
