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.

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. 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!

CURRENT LEADERS

My name is Felice and if there's only one thing you should know about me is that I love puns. I also have a weird affinity for fanny packs, umbrella hats, and all things that should be helpful but are just deemed ridiculous. I'm also a firm believer in being positive about life -sometimes I may even be stubbornly optimistic. I'm excited to make a difference and I'm happy to be part of this organization.

Felice - Denver

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'm from Kentucky and I have lived in Denver since 1995 and have two grown children. I love anything people, networking and building relationships. I'm passionate about volunteering. As a life long volunteer, if I get sad or in a funk, I go serve someone and all is right with the world again.

Suzy - Denver

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.
