Volunteer Stories:


Why would anyone stop volunteering for WorldDenver? Oh, well, to start volunteering at the World Affairs Council of Oregon, of course. Over the past five years I have had the opportunity to hear from and meet politicians, subject-matter experts, journalists, actors, activists and others who came to Denver to broaden our knowledge and increase our capacity for empathy and mutual understanding. I know that writing about their visits for the WorldDenver website and having them in my home certainly did those things for me. I have tremendous regard for WorldDenver and staff and have been fortunate to have the opportunity to donate my time to further the mission of the organization. I started my work in world affairs in DC, jumped on board in Denver and am taking it further west. Thank you again for the opportunity!
