Reflection & Discussion
At this point in your life, do you find yourself questioning which path to take, and where you should place your energy?
Do you want to concentrate on finding the right career or do you feel compelled to choose a different road?
If you long to pursue a faithful path of service, consider joining us.
We are a community of faith and action that responds to the Gospel call in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul. We are young adults, ages 21-30, who serve Denver's marginalized-elderly, homeless, developmentally disabled and at-risk youth. Our year-long program offers an opportunity for spiritual, emotional, professional growth, and a way of discerning and living one's Christian vocation.
Who we are
Colorado Vincentian Volunteers is a year of service program in Denver, CO. We are rooted in the Vincentian Catholic identity and are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion work while also responding to direct needs in the community.
What we do
Volunteers work full time at nonprofits or schools directly serving people living on the margins.
How we do it
Together! As an intentional community, the volunteers become transformed from the support of one another, staff, and the greater community.
The Grounds of Colorado Vincentian Volunteers
Acknowledging that we reside in the homelands of Indigenous Peoples is an important step in recognizing the history and the original stewards of these lands. Land acknowledgments must extend far beyond words, the United States has worked hard to erase the narratives of Indigenous Peoples over time. Land acknowledgment statements can help to remind us of the history, the contributions and the sacrifices Native peoples have made.
Colorado Vincentian Volunteers honors and acknowledges that it resides on the traditional and unceded territories of the Ute, Cheyenne, and Arapaho Peoples. We also recognize the 48 contemporary Indigenous Tribes and Nations who have historically called Colorado home.
We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and future, and to all those who have stewarded the land and water for generations. We also recognize that the religious institution which we are affiliated with has inflicted harm to Indigenous Peoples.
May this acknowledgement demonstrate a commitment to working to dismantle ongoing legacies of oppression and inequities and recognize the current and future contributions of Indigenous communities in Denver.
