  • Human Services Volunteer Opportunities

    Jefferson County Human Services works with families within the child welfare system by providing and coordinating services to allow families to thrive in Jeffco. We recognize the important role community volunteers have in supporting the children and families within Jefferson County.

    The county currently has a volunteer program for citizens who wish to play a role in improving the lives of children and families. We are looking for on-going volunteers who are interested in supporting families within child welfare by providing transportation to program appointments and/or assisting with childcare during these appointments.

    As a volunteer for the Children, Youth, Families and Adult Protection Division, you will transport children from the community to the Jefferson County Campus for program appointments - much of the transportation will be in the Denver Metro area, however, some families could be as far as Greeley or Colorado Springs. Our goal is to match a volunteer with a family based on location, preferred ages, and vehicle size. This will allow rapport and trust to be built between the volunteer and the family.

    Other opportunities may be available for short term, short notice assistance located in the Golden office.

    Please reach out to the division at CYFVolunteers@jeffco.us if you have interest in learning more about the volunteer program within Jefferson County.

    Jefferson County Head Start Volunteer Opportunities

    We are dedicated to making sure all young children are given the opportunity to learn as many valuable lessons as possible during the years when it's easiest for them to learn. None of this would be possible without the help of passionate, caring, dedicated volunteers.

    Whether you want to help children in the classroom or work behind the scenes, your time can truly make a difference in a child's life, not to mention the lives of their families.

    Children aren't the only people who learn at Head Start. We also make sure their parents are given the tools they need to reinforce crucial lessons at home. 

    Please contact Teresa Lehtinen at 720-497-7946 or tlehtine@jeffco.us or download a Volunteer Information Packet. Adobe Reader is required for viewing this document 

    Get in touch with us today and you can help shape a child's life tomorrow.
