IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you attend an Orientation Training AFTER March 2nd, 2017 we will no longer be signing off on hours completed at Good Will or at Program Council. Our goal is to make sure you are engaging in relevant and meaningful volunteer experiences.

Orientations are hosted throughout the year at least twice per week, during the academic year. Please click the button below to sign up for an orientation. If the orientation time does not work for you, please email volunteer@colorado.edu and let us know what other times might work for you. You are required to complete the orientation within 7 days of your sanction. All orientations will meet at the Volunteer Resource Center in UMC 458.

Orientation Sign Up

Community Service Orientations serve as an introduction to service. During an orientation you will:

  • Understand the events and programs of the Volunteer Resource Center.
  • Understand the basics of volunteering and how to engage in meaningful service.
  • Find at least three meaningful volunteer opportunities that are matched with your personal interests and talents.
  • Understand how to complete your volunteer hours and plan out time to complete them.
  • Walk away with the names and numbers of 3 organizations to whom you can begin reaching out.

Volunteering doesn't have to be a punitive experience. It can be an opportunity to engage in your community, share your passions with others, build your experience and resume, and give back to the community you take part it in everyday.


Why Volunteer?

"It was absolutely amazing! Boulder flood relief was a very humbling experience and I will continue to help out. At the radio station I am continuing to volunteer to become a DJ! Both experiences I would have never got to do or learn so much if I didn't have required hours but I have learned volunteering is just a good individual activity to do and is very gratifying." ~ Boulder Municipal Court Student
