Volunteers are welcome to participate in a variety of ways to help support Colorado College’s mission. Alumni, parents, and friends of the college are encouraged to inquire about our opportunities to get engaged digitally, regionally, and eventually on campus.
Volunteer opportunities are organized into five categories for ease of understanding.
