volunteer: become an ally
an opportunity to live different
and empower others to reach their fullest potential
Volunteering at CrossPurpose IS….
Experiencing the richness of authentic community
Empowering neighbors on their journey towards financial freedom
Breaking down social barriers to build mutually rewarding relationships
Volunteering at CrossPurpose IS NOT….
Saving someone or becoming their hero
Providing short-term relief that doesn’t make a lasting impact
We call our volunteers “Allies”.
Being an Ally means walking alongside CrossPurpose program participants on their career development journey as they pursue financial freedom and achieve their fullest potential
Every Wednesday from 6-8pm
6 Month Commitment
3050 Richard Allen Court
Building counter-cultural, meaningful relationships is the single most effective way to empower others to overcome their barriers and create lasting impact
What Volunteers (Allies) Have to Say:
“Before I met Bizi, I was overwhelmed. I was very aware of the world’s problems, but I felt inadequate…too weak to change them. Since I met Bizi, things have changed. To be a true friend, I had to speak up. I became his advocate; he lent me his strength and I grew a backbone. Living different gave me courage.”
“Tiye is the leader of her dreams, full of passion, life and love… Through the time we have walked together, we have learned to be more grateful for the little and big things, to pray when we couldn’t take away the pain, and most of all to persevere when life knocks us down. Tiye has become family to us.”
-Gloria & Peter

Other Volunteer Opportunities
Can’t make it on Wednesday nights? Can’t commit to 6 months?
No worries. We understand.
However, we’d still love for you to be involved. Here are other significant ways to lend your time and talents to the mission of CrossPurpose:
Cater or cook a meal for family gathering
Family gathering is our weekly community dinner where 120-160 leaders and allies gather to share a meal. Volunteers would provide a meal for one Wednesday between 5:00-7:00 pm.
Tutor a leader
Our leaders could use some support in the areas of math and english, or to understand the new fields they are studying to enter.
We provide childcare to leaders and allies during our weekly family gatherings (5:30 pm – 8:30 pm) and also for special events.
Teach a leader to drive
There are usually a few leaders per class who do not have drivers licenses. Volunteers would need to use their own vehicle and rely on their own insurance.
Assist with used car purchases
Help a leader find, evaluate and budget a used car.
Give us a call at (720) 724-9544 if you’re interested in any of these additional volunteer opportunities!
