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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
Hi, I'm Aubrey! I moved to Boulder in August of 2016 from Northern California and love it here. I work with adults with special needs as well as some digital marketing. Always a sucker for cute pups, dessert, and bad puns.
Lindsey is a 6th generation Floridian who moved to Colorado to start a business and explore the Rockies. She enjoys anything outdoors including hiking, skiing, and camping. She loves working with and for people to reach a common goal and is looking forward to being more involved in the Denver community.
Until the last two or three years, I never would've considered even going to a volunteer event alone, let alone leading one. When I moved to Colorado, after going through a couple tough years, I made a promise to myself to start feeding good back into my community. It's been amazing for my emotional health, and I'm excited to start helping other people experience the same benefits of volunteer work. Also a big fan of puppies.
