Volunteering with ORIC

ORIC needs volunteers to help staff our information desk in the REI store in downtown Denver. We want people who love the Colorado outdoors, know a good bit about it, are willing to learn a lot more, and enjoy talking about it to the public.

A typical shift for a volunteer is four hours once a week. But you can work more or less than that. The desk needs to be staffed during normal store hours which are Monday-Friday 9-9, Saturday 9-9, Sunday 9-7.

**There is an immediate need for help on Fridays 6-9, Saturdays 9-11 & 3-9, Mondays 6-9, Tuesdays 6-9, Wednesdays 4-9, Thursdays 2-9.**

Perks include a discount at REI and a free pass to Colorado's State Parks.

If you are interested or want to ask questions, email Bryan Fons, ORIC manager, at Or call him at 303-433-0845.
