Third Way Center Volunteer Program

The individuals who join Third Way Center’s team of dedicated volunteers are essential to the success of our teens. Volunteers are a valuable component of furthering our mission by connecting with our youth and providing the community with additional opportunities of involvement.

Our volunteers provide support in a variety of ways including guest speaking in classrooms, assisting in event planning and coordination, as well as helping with painting and landscaping projects. To learn more about Third Way Center’s Volunteer Program check out the opportunities listed below. It is our goal to recruit individuals who have an overwhelming desire to give back and inspire the young people we serve.




Employee and Corporate Groups

Many of our capital improvement projects have are completed by generous Employee Work Groups. We have developed outstanding partnerships with businesses in the Denver area, and we are always looking to add more. The opportunities available for workplace volunteering are endless.

Capital Improvement Projects

Many of our facilities are in need of capital improvements, and we often work with volunteer work groups and specialized individuals who are willing to donate their time and expertise. Opportunities for capital improvement projects are always available and include tasks such as: painting, gardening/landscaping and helping transport donated pieces of furniture.

Please reach out if you are interested in helping us out!

Event Volunteer

Throughout the year Third Way Center puts on and is involved in a variety of events that allow us to continue our efforts in offering truth and hope to the individuals we serve. In order to ensure that these events are reaching their full potential, we rely on help from our dedicated group of volunteers. Event Volunteers are often included in our planning committees that help with the overall planning, pre-event tasks (i.e. stuffing envelopes, event promotion), help with setup and cleanup at the events, and much more.

All Event Volunteers receive free admission to our events to enjoy their hard work in action.

Holiday Hope

For the Youth of Third Way Center, the holidays can be a very difficult time.

Individuals who wish to assist with the Holiday Hope Program will be asked to spread the word to recruit more participants, help organize and purchase additional gifts and supplies, and finally deliver meal items and gifts to each of the houses.
