Volunteer With Us

Volunteerism and the sense of compassion, empathy, and mutual understanding that community service helps develop are fundamental to achieving a sustainable community. From tutoring children to removing invasive species to volunteering at the CC Farm, students, faculty, and staff can make tangible contributions that address sustainability challenges through community service. Community engagement can help students develop leadership skills while deepening their understanding of practical, real-world problems. Colorado College can contribute to our campus community by harnessing our financial and academic resources to address community needs. In addition, we can contribute toward sustainability broadly through inter-campus collaboration, engagement with external networks and organizations, and public policy advocacy. For example, the college has frameworks for community stakeholder engagement in governance, strategy, and operations. The college also works in conjunction with local and state leaders to help advance sustainability issues that affect the college and our surrounding community.
