Believe In The Dream and Come Weave Dreams With Us!

Now accepting applications

We know there are many options to choose from to offer your time and service to the community. Thank you for choosing “I Have A Dream” Foundation of Boulder County! We believe effective and successful volunteer management and supervision is essentially about building relationships. It’s about supporting our volunteers with getting a handle on what they are supposed to be doing, communicating when they are doing well, and coaching them and providing direction when they need it. IHDF volunteers are a key part of our organization, and they deserve to be appreciated for all their enthusiasm and hard work. It is important to show that we value their time, commitment, and effort. Most volunteers devote their time because they’re motivated by the mission. To sustain that dedication and motivation, however, they need to feel appreciated. It’s important to implement dedicated systems for recognizing our volunteers to effectively show our gratitude for their impact. Volunteer recognition and appreciation is an organization-wide responsibility. A simple “thank you” goes a long way!

Although we appreciate the interest shown by each applicant, we cannot guarantee a position for everyone. In this case, your application will be kept active for six months should an opportunity arise that could potentially be a good fit with your experience, skills, and motivation. A team member will contact you if a position more suitable to your skills becomes available.

IHDF is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. Applicants are expected to explain and demonstrate their commitment to these values.
