Volunteer Positions

Internships (Academic and Community). Interns at Inside/Out Youth Services get involved in our direct services, from program development to implementation and evaluation. We will customize internships to benefit your need for experience with our mission’s need for help.

Volunteer Facilitators

We are seeking supportive, outgoing individuals to supervise and facilitate our youth programming hours at both our downtown location and our satellite program at Library 21C in northern Colorado Springs. Youth hours occur Monday, Wednesday, and Friday beginning at 3:30 pm and ending at 7 pm (7:30pm on Fridays). Programming during these hours includes unstructured free time (Chill Out hours), as well as structured programming hours and recreation night. For detailed descriptions of these program hours, browse our calendar.

Communication Specialist Intern – Fall 2017

Inside/Out Youth Services is seeking an intern to manage our communications needs, including weekly emails to volunteers, donor communications, event promotions, and curation of our social media. Students entering a Spring 2017 semester at a local college, with versatile tech skills and experience, would be well-suited to this task.

Event Assistance

Help us host and organize events for youth and Inside/Out fundraising events throughout the year! Volunteers can be involved in every aspect of events from planning committee to marketing to being present at the event.
