About the Volunteer Experience

Experience Your Colorado with VOC!


We have a place for YOU at Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC)! People from all walks of life have discovered that VOC is the best place to get outdoors and give back.

Do you love adventure? A VOC backcountry trail project that includes camping under the stars (leaving the cooking and cleanup to us!) offers a volunteer experience that will take you to new, beautiful, and unexplored places throughout Colorado

Or, perhaps you want to get or stay in shape while taking in the fresh air. In that case, a day of high country rock work, removing invasive weeds, or planting trees and gardens will do just that.

While each individual's volunteer experience is unique, we can guarantee this: that your experience with VOC will be rewarding and unforgettable. With a wide variety of projects across the state lasting as short as a half-day or as long as a weekend or a few days, there's something for everyone young and old(er), new and not-so-new. Experience is never needed to volunteer, and any level of service is always appreciated.
