Press Room

Welcome to Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado's Press Room!

This press room is designed to provide members of the press with quick access to information about Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC). 

VOC is a leading statewide nonprofit volunteer organization whose mission is to motivate and enable people to be active stewards of Colorado’s natural resources. Since 1984, VOC’s award-winning volunteer, youth, and leadership training programs have engaged more than 110,000 people of all ages in caring for Colorado’s outdoors – a total donated labor value of nearly 22 million. These volunteer efforts have made a lasting impact on Colorado communities through hands-on work in wildfire and flood restoration, trail building and maintenance, tree planting and re-forestation, and much more.
