Volunteering in our community is a NAPO Colorado tradition. The chapter participates annually in GO (Get Organized) Month, partnering with local nonprofits and corporations. In recent years, NAPO Colorado members have presented free organizing seminars at the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; free hands-on organizing sessions for two LLS seminar attendees; provided a day of free organizing for Denver's Extreme Community Makeover storage garage; helped organize selected Goodwill Industries clients; and given all-day organizing presentations at IKEA.
Individual members of the chapter may also choose to participate in NAPO's community service program, Quantum Leap. The Quantum Leap program consists of volunteer professional organizers who donate their time working with local community nonprofit agencies and offer skill-building organizational sessions on how to manage paper, time and money. Classes are conducted nationwide in coordination with various local agencies with a partnering Quantum Leap trainer. This program provides free organizational skills training to people in life transitions who cannot afford but critically need professional guidance. Our current Director of Membership, Sarah Gabriele, provides annual Quantum Leap classes on better management of time, paper, and personal finances, to participants in the Women's Bean Project of Denver, with help from several NAPO Colorado members.
The chapter is interested in hearing about volunteer opportunities with nonprofits that could benefit from GO Month or Quantum Leap programs. Contact the chapter's Vice President to learn more about GO Month or Quantum Leap.
