Volunteer

Warren Village has a long tradition of partnering with hundreds of volunteers every year, who provide thousands of hours of service to our families. While the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our ability to engage volunteers at the same level as before, we are currently re-structuring our volunteer opportunities in order to adapt to hybrid programming.

Volunteer opportunities are available at our three locations: our main facility on 13th and Gilpin Street, our First Step location on 52nd and Federal, and our Ivy Crossing location at Iliff and Quebec. We offer opportunities to volunteer regularly with our service programs, and opportunities for corporate or community groups interested in a single day of service.
