WHAT IS A KINDFUL LEADER
This is a great opportunity to get more involved in Project Helping!
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!
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!
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. 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.
Project Helping will find a monthly volunteer opportunity 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 opportunity, 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!

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 born and raised Texan that is a recent Colorado transplant! I initial move to this great state looking to start my career and build my network in the Denver metro community. beyond that, I love to spend the summer months out hiking and fishing amongst gorgeous Colorado streams and rivers. In the winter you can find me in the same mountains slaying what Colorado is known for, it's epic skiing. When I am not in the mountains I enjoy hanging in the city dining with friends and of course the new folk I meet out and about.
I am a food, fitness, and nature enthusiast from Singapore! I love immersing in different cultures both internationally and regionally that's why I chose to transfer to a university in Ann Arbor, MI after completing my associates degree in Santa Barbara, CA. I just relocated to gorgeous Colorado and spend time in the wilderness as much as I can!
I am a former entrepreneur, current stay at home mom to 2 elementary school boys. I volunteer on a political campaign, play the piano, am learning conversational french, and want to get to know people in the community better by helping others and getting to know my fellow volunteers. I love laughing and french fries, and have a serious addiction to nut butters.
