Thank you for your interest in serving the Colorado Springs community. Volunteers are vital to the heartbeat of Springs Rescue Mission. With the support of volunteers like you, together we can bring change in the Pikes Peak Region!
Our next scheduled Volunteer Orientations are Saturday, February 21st at 10:30 am, Saturday, February 28th at 10:30 am, and Saturday, March 14th at 10:30 am. We will be meeting in the lobby of 5 W. Las Vegas St., 80903 to begin each day. The orientation includes a tour of our campus as well as ideas of where and how you can volunteer with us. Orientations typically take about an hour and a half to complete.
Many of our volunteers find orientation to be a helpful place to begin. For those volunteers wanting to volunteer a couple times per month or more frequently, a Volunteer Orientation is a required part of the application process due to the nature of volunteer placement.
