Volunteer / Intern Program

Thank you for your desire to support Turning Point and help turn lives around.

With your support, we can help more children like Savannah, who came to us two years behind grade level at school and abusing alcohol and other drugs, and Gabe, who hopped from family to family and school to school and wound up involved with gangs. These kids found themselves at Turning Point (perhaps a bit unwillingly) and with the help of our staff, developed the necessary skill sets and coping methods to turn their lives around.

We want to help younger children like Michael to find positive ways to express themselves, to improve their ability to communicate, and to strengthen their relationships with parents, teachers and other role models. We want to help these younger kids feel confident and empowered, and we want them on the right track before it’s too late.

More and more Colorado children need our help each year, and we need your help to help them.

Volunteers and interns are an integral part of Turning Point’s staff and save our organization considerably in staff salaries and benefits.

Want to volunteer with Turning Point? There are many ways:

  • Organize a group to help with Turning Point building and grounds maintenance
  • Provide administrative assistance in our office
  • Work with youth in our classrooms or in daily living experiences

We have volunteers who come to help for a day and volunteers who work with us regularly for years. Any time you can spend will make a difference.

We also offer internships.  Receive college credit at CSU, UNC, and other colleges or earn documented work experience hours toward your certified addiction counselor designation.

If you are interested in volunteering or completing an internship with Turning Point, please contact us.
