WHAT IS A KYND LEADER
This is a great opportunity to get more involved in Project Helping!
A Kynd Leader is an ambassador for Project Helping who leads volunteers once a month (or more). 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!
WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP
Here is our current calendar of events. Anything marked with OPEN in red is a spot where you can (co-) lead.
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 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.
I grew up on the east coast and found my way out to Denver in 2010. When I am not working you can find golfing, practicing yoga, and my latest hobby of rock climbing. My biggest passion is helping others and seeing everyone I meet to be successful...Without happiness nothing great happens!
I am Shawna Walton, I am 15 years old and I want to be able to help the ones in need. I want to be a teacher and a social worker when I am older. I am also in the Bear Creek High School Marching Band, and play the clarinet.
I believe wholly in the four values that I center my life around being family, friends, impact and fun. I have a wonderful wife, a beautiful daughter and amazing golden retriever that motivate me, keep me busy and bring me pure joy every day. I love hearing people's stories and helping solve challenges for my friends, and I am always looking for new friends. No matter what kind of day I am having, I know that my day is typically much better than so many other people and devote my time to trying to make others' lives easier as I am able. If you remember a kid in middle or high school who was constantly being yelled at for making jokes or being the class clown, well then you pretty much understand me. I am the type of person who loves to have fun while working really hard. For me personally, the power of laughter is stress relieving and impactful, which allows for truly great things to happen and bonds to form.
