Agency Description:

Extreme Community Makeover is a movement of volunteers working in partnership with residents of specific Denver neighborhoods to complete home and neighborhood improvement projects. These projects include graffiti removal, landscaping, painting, yard work, or other projects identified by the residents. Groups such as churches, companies, families, and schools may participate, or individuals can take part. Equally important as fences that are built are the relationships being built—between the volunteers and community members, among the neighbors on a block, and between the community and resources in their neighborhood.

Volunteer Opportunity

Projects Team

Description: The Projects Team will serve as a resource for the Project Leaders as needed through floating around to all projects during the Work Day to answer questions, trouble-shoot problems, and make sure the projects are completed to the best of our ability. Team members will distribute yard signs at the beginning of the day and collect them at the end of the day to note homes where projects are taking place. The Projects Team manages the dumpster and trash/debris removal, with the ECM truck as a resource. This team will also be available to groups on an as needed basis when they are unable to identify a Project Leader.

Volunteer Opportunity

Neighborhood Team

Description: The Neighborhood Team will create a strategic approach to community relations as it will consist of community residents in each of the neighborhoods where ECM works. The goal of resident involvement will strengthen the impact ECM has in long-term community building efforts. Each of the neighborhoods will then have their own team that can get the word out about future Work Days in their neighborhood, while building relationships amongst neighbors.
