Community volunteers are important to Colorado Humanities’ effectiveness, and we offer a variety of opportunities in many areas of administrative and program support for those interested in joining our work. Volunteers may contribute time, energy, and expertise to help with general office tasks, and to implement programs, host events, assist with public relations and fundraising, or serve on advisory committees.

Contact our office at info@coloradohumanities.org for more information.


Colorado Humanities accepts nominations for the Board of Directors year-round.  We seek nominees who have a passion for the humanities and who can actively support our mission and goals. We strive for our Board to represent the diverse geographical, racial, ethnic, occupational, and generational constituencies of our state.
