I lead certain efforts with two non-profit organizations because helping others is one of my core values.
Colorado Public Health Association (CPHA) Health Equity Coalition
Because of my work with Unlimited Yoga, I became connected with the Colorado Public Health Association, an organization whose mission is to “educate, empower and develop the Colorado public health community.”
I value the work they do to champion health equity and social justice in Colorado and decided to join their Health Equity Coalition in the summer of 2018. Sooner after that, I became a workgroup lead for the coalition’s Professional Development & Education team.
Our workgroup is responsible for a few areas of professional development including: organizing and facilitating CPHA webinars, coordinating CHPA Connect events, and bolstering online resources for CHPA members.
If you would like to learn more or get involved, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
After volunteering with Project Helping on a drop-in basis for a few years, I decided to become a become Project Helping Kyndful Leader.
As a Kyndful Leader, I lead volunteer events on behalf of Project Helping to deliver on their mission to make a positive impact on the community, and on the individual volunteering as they find mental wellness through helping others.
Through Project Helping I have volunteered with several organizations over the years including:
Urban Peak, Reading Partners at Dora Moore School, SAME Cafe on Colfax, Denver Rescue Mission, Project Worthmore, Treasure House of Hope, and Baby Haven Childcare Center to name a few.
In the summer of 2018, I led monthly volunteer events at DeLaney Community Farm, a Denver Urban Gardens (DUG) and Project Worthmore partnership.
Those days were some of my favorite because I got to combine my interests in gardening and plants, while simultaneously supporting refugees through sustainable agriculture and community building.
For the 2019 season, I look forward to being a Kyndful Leader at Jovial Concepts, a Denver non-profit that “empowers under-served communities to thrive, by providing healthy food via sustainable, organic, urban agricultural activities.”
If this sounds rewarding and fun, come join me!
