Spark the Change Colorado
“We spark change and inspire a movement of good through the power of volunteerism, service, and engagement.” Giving back is very important to us at This IS Idaho Springs, and this is the perfect time of year to give a little extra! That’s why we’re partnering with 12 great charities in the Denver Metro area, such as Spark the Change Colorado, to highlight the great work that’s happening all year round!
What They Do
Spark the Change Colorado runs a variety of programs to encourage volunteerism, on both an individual and corporate level. They are partnered with over 150 different organizations to connect excited volunteers with organizations that need them. They share volunteer opportunities, match organizations with individuals, and offer training for volunteer managers. Spark the Change Colorado also works with organizations to ensure they are using their volunteers efficiently to certify them in Points of Light. This allows funders to see how volunteers are leveraged and see the greater impact of their contributions.
There are also direct services programs such as their Senior Companion Program that matches senior volunteers with other seniors who need transportation and additional help. This builds friendships and the community among volunteers and clients. They also offer a pro bono mental health program with licensed therapists. This expands the reach of mental health services to underserved areas that would otherwise lack access to treatment.
Spark the Change Colorado is creating a community that is empowered to get involved and make a difference. With a variety of programs, they are providing opportunities for individuals and organizations to build relationships and see their impact in action. They bring people together for a common goal and make a difference in the process. To get involved in their efforts, visit their website and see how you can help.
