Volunteer Job Description: Volunteering at DeLaney is an excellent way to learn more, become involved, and support issues related to refugees, food access, community development, and sustainable agriculture. Volunteers spend the morning helping with whatever the needs of the farm are at that time. Planting, weeding, harvesting, and prepping vegetables for distribution are all part of the fun of volunteering on the farm. You may join a workday as an individual or request to bring a group. Volunteers 14 years and older are welcome to join our workdays. Anyone below the age of 18 must attend with an adult.

Project Worthmore works to restore worth to our refugee neighbors through the heart of our community. Every family we serve has a unique story, a steadfast courage, and a resilience to survive and rebuild their lives here in Colorado. Started as a makeshift response to the unmet needs of our refugee neighbors in 2009, we have grown to offer a variety of programs and services including English language classes, citizenship classes, a community-run food access program, a refugee training farm, a five-chair dental clinic, and access to Community Navigators and Family Partners.
