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!

CURRENT LEADERS

Hi! I am currently a high school junior in Colorado. I am extremely passionate about science, math, and volunteering! I have lived all across the country in Michigan, Wisconsin, Alabama, Alaska, and Illinois but so far Colorado is my favorite! I am so thankful for the opportunity to give back to my community!

Chloe - Denver

I am a retired first grade teacher who started volunteering with Project Helping shortly after retiring. I have volunteered for many events and have enjoyed them all. Besides volunteering I still sub at my old school and love it as much as I did teaching. I am at the pool almost daily and love doing pilates. I also like to read and spend time with my family.

Terry - Denver

In my aim to live life to the fullest, I believe I need to help others to do the same! In addition to volunteering, I am also passionate about music and philosophy. I like to write songs and ponder the meaning of life and existence. There's not a lot that ticks me off because I aim to keep a level head at all times and to take a wide-angle view of any frustrations. However, if I'm allowed one complaint, I will admit that I don't like being woken up before my alarm!

Timothy - Denver

I'm a Colorado native with a passion for being active outdoors. I spend a lot of time running and skiing, and really love engaging and building the communities around those two sports. If I'm not at work or outside, I'm enjoying my time with my lovely wife and our two rescue pups.
