A Little Something is a crafts cooperative for refugee women that fosters self-sufficiency through creating and selling homemade crafts. To support our cause, A Little Something relies on friendly, outgoing volunteers to make our sales happen!

Volunteers greet customers, share our mission and product knowledge, and complete sales transactions at various craft sale events around Denver. We are looking for volunteers who are able to volunteer occasionally for a 3-5 hour shift at various sales events.

Duties may include:

  • Transporting, setting up or breaking down the sales display (which may include an E-Z Up canopy and/or tables
  • Keeping the sales display stocked and attractively arranged
  • Handling cash/check/credit card sales
  • Sharing our story with customers.

We are particularly looking for volunteers to help from September to December with Winter/Christmas sales, and during the summer months, but help is welcomed all year round.

Volunteers may occasionally work alongside and coach refugee participants at sales events. Training will be provided pre-sale and volunteers often work in teams at events.

Volunteers are passionate about our mission to empower Denver’s refugee women through this local income generation craft project and share this knowledge of refugees and refugee participants’ stories with customers. The service of our volunteers enables A Little Something to further its work to make a meaningful difference in the lives of Denver’s refugee artisans.

A Little Something is a crafts collective for refugee women living in Metro Denver. Together, we facilitate empowerment by teaching crafting skills and providing psychosocial support that helps refugee women work toward self-sufficiency while thriving within the creative process.

A Little Something empowers refugee women in Denver by developing a supportive network of other artisans and a means to sell the creations the women make. Our participants produce a variety of lovely handmade crafts, including handmade beaded jewelry, handwoven accessories, and knitted items. Participants also learn about financial literacy, teamwork, and basic business principles.
