Estes Valley Connects

  • Those who can, do.  Those who can do more, volunteer

    Volunteering gives you the chance to develop personally in many ways. For example, students report that volunteering:   

    • Adds something special to the student experience.
    • Increases self confidence.
    • Increases self esteem.
    • Gives students a 'feel good' factor.
    • Links students with the local community providing networks they wouldn't normally be able to benefit from.
    • Gives a chance to escape the student bubble and meet other people.
    • Helps students make new friends.
    • Adds to a student's level of enjoyment.
    • Makes students feel like they are contributing to something of value.


    Volunteering is a great way of benefiting the local community. The major benefits include:

    • Students bringing enthusiasm and energy to community organizations.
    • Students bringing specific skills or knowledge which can benefit local organizations.
    • Helping to break down barriers between the local community and students.
    • It keeps the thriving voluntary sector in Estes Park strong through the support of student volunteers.
