Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities
*All ongoing volunteer opportunities recommend participation in a 1 hour orientation on the first Monday or third Thursday of each month from 6-7pm. Special arrangements can be made if you are not available during this time.
Ride & Report
Commitment: 2 hours per month (any day or time) – Ride an assigned 2 mile section of the Sand Creek trail and email a short report of any observed trail maintenance needs or other observations.
Commitment: 6-10 hrs per month (during the work day; some projects may be able to be done remotely on your own time) – Interested in volunteering without getting your hands dirty? Come help us out in the Sand Creek office! We always need help updating paperwork and sending out mailings.
Youth Program Volunteer – NextGen Partners
Commitment: One or more 2-hour sessions per month (usually in the late afternoon) – NextGen is Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership’s youth program that exposes underprivileged students to environmental education and natural resource careers. Assist in writing curriculum, researching field trip opportunities, and teaching lessons.
Commitment: 2-4hrs per month (during the work day or during special events) – Are you fluent in Spanish? We are always trying to make our materials available in Spanish as well as English. Help us translate posters, signs, and pamphlets.
Commitment: 2-10hrs per month (any day and time) – If you can’t make it to our monthly volunteer clean-up events, help us out on your own time. There are always places along the trail that need work. We provide the tools, and will pick up the trash bags when you’re done!
NPET Team Leaders
Commitment: 3hrs per month (the 1st Saturday of most months, from 9am-noon) – Do you want to take a leadership role during our monthly volunteer events? We need team leaders to support other volunteers during NPET. Leaders will guide groups to work sites and will oversee the volunteer team activities.
Special Event Team Leaders
Commitment: 4 hours per month (on an as-needed basis) – Sometimes we host special volunteer projects for corporate, scout, or school groups and need extra team leaders to guide a group of volunteers doing a specific task.
