Volunteer Your Time


Join the hundreds of volunteers who have helped Community Connections over the years by serving as a  volunteer to help clients, in the office, on the board of directors or with events.  We really can't do this without you!

Current opportunities (Summer/Fall 2018):



Front office


Seeking a friendly face and voice to help out in our Durango office reception area answering phones, greeting people and possibly helping with light administrative tasks a few hours or days per week. We are flexible! Please contact Laura Alsum, Executive Assistant/Office Manager, at laura@cci-colorado.org or 970-385-3452.



Beertender (got your attention, eh?)


CCI is the beneficiary of two Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad events: T-Rex (June) and The Pumpkin Patch (October). Durango Brewing Company generously donates beer to CCI to sell at these events. Here's where you come in. If you are interested in signing up for a couple hour shift (or two) of beer sales (shift beers included), please contact Laura Alsum, Executive Assistant/Office Manager, at laura@cci-colorado.org or 970-385-3452.



Festival of Trees


Volunteer to help with CCI's local holiday tradition December 7 & 8, 2018.  The day is filled with food, fun, and beautifully decorated Christmas trees. We need help with set-up and decorations, food and drink, drawing, miscellaneous errands, event promotion and fun!. Better yet, become an event sponsor. To volunteer or sponsor, contact Laura Alsum, Executive Assistant/Office Manager, at laura@cci-colorado.org or 970-385-3452.


Board Member 


Board members primarily participate in policy and governance,  organizational oversight and decision-making, monitoring CCI's finances, and overseeing the President/CEO. Members attend monthly meetings where they contribute their professional expertise and passion for the people CCI serves. They act as advocates and ambassadors by representing the organization in the public and they assist in fundraising.  If you're interested in serving as a board member, contact Tara Kiene, CCI President/CEO, at tara@cci-colorado.org or 970-385-3443.
