Background Statement

Spark the Change Colorado, formerly Metro Volunteers, was formed in 1994 as the result of a merger between the Technical Assistance Center (TAC) and the Volunteer Center, a program of the Mile High United Way (MHUW). Between 1994 and 2003, the organization operated programs that fulfilled a two-fold mission statement to build the effectiveness of nonprofits (from TAC) and connect people with volunteer opportunities (from the Volunteer Center).

In 2004, the Metro Volunteers Board and staff decided that the agency could have a greater impact on the community if it focused its mission solely on volunteerism. During the same time, Metro Volunteers became an affiliate of the Hands On Network, a national alliance of volunteer organizations whose mission is to transform people and communities through service and civic engagement.

In 2018, Metro Volunteers became Spark the Change Colorado. We wanted a name that encompassed the entire state of Colorado and the action of the changemakers who volunteer here!

Spark the Change Colorado currently provides direct service programs including : The Mental Wellness Program, Senior Companion Program, & Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP).

We also provide training & support in Board Leadership & Service, Skilled Volunteering, Service Enterprise, Volunteer Engagement, and Disaster Response & Recovery Volunteering. Additional services for Group/Corporate Volunteering and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) available.
