Other Group Volunteer Opportunities (updated as of October 2019)

  • The holidays are fast approaching. How would you like to help us clear out some space for to allow for much needed storage space for upcoming youth holiday gifts? If interested, we are looking for a group of 4-6 individuals to help with this project at our Administrative office.
  • Did you know that Urban Peak owns three housing buildings? When a youth moves out, we have to prepare the apartments for new youth to move in. This requires deep cleaning and painting each unit. We have some youth moving out in the coming months and so we are looking for a group of 4-6 individuals to come assist us with getting these apartments move-in ready.

If interested in learning more about either of these group opportunities, please contact Tamar Berner at 303.974.2954 or [email protected]
