Community Service Opportunities

Goodwill Industries of Denver

Give Someone a Hand Up

Do some good

We believe that a little goodwill can go a long way. By volunteering in the Denver metro area and northern Colorado with Goodwill, you could help change lives for thousands in need. Investments don't always come in the form of money—the gift of your time is just as precious. That's why Goodwill offers a variety of volunteer opportunities. Plus, volunteer work provides a sense of pride and accomplishment while helping others.

Flexible and right in your neighborhood

We make volunteering in the Denver metro area and northern Colorado easier than ever. Our volunteer opportunities stretch far and wide, with many Colorado school locations and Career Connection Centers to choose from. Saying that we're proud of the community we serve would be an understatement. You'll find many opportunities to contribute by volunteering at Goodwill.
