Lend a helping hand toward a thriving Downtown Colorado Springs!
Whether you’d like to help at festivals and events, distribute materials, provide office support or even serve as a docent on art walks, there are many ways for you to get with Downtown Partnership. To learn more about volunteering, contact Margo Baker at 719-886-0088. Downtown volunteer opportunities include:
- Collateral distribution (walking Downtown to distribute posters and rack cards). Minimum 2-hour shifts monthly on the third week of each month. Other distribution opportunities vary.
- Office work (data entry, mailings, staffing reception desk, etc.). Minimum 3-hour shift weekly, or six hours monthly.
- Art/history docents (lead walking tours of Downtown public art and historic properties; training provided). Two-hour shifts on as-needed basis.
Other volunteer opportunities
Downtown Partnership works closely with Community Advancing Public Safety (CAPS), a volunteer program partnership of the Colorado Springs police and fire departments and Office of Emergency Management. Among many CAPS opportunities, volunteers may serve as Downtown foot patrol Ambassadors for our city, providing customer service to visitors and merchants, while inherently promoting public safety as extra “eyes and ears” on the streets.
Also, highly trained CAPS volunteers may work with CSPD officers to staff surveillance cameras in the Downtown Colorado Springs area. For more information on the CAPS Ambassador or Public Safety Camera System programs, contact Jean Kraus at 719-444-7735, or click here to submit an online volunteer application.
