COMMUNITY NETWORK:Resources, services, news for Boulder County, Colorado
Last Update:
by the Volunteer Coordinator

New Volunteer Questionnaire

The Boulder Community Network invites the public to participate in its endeavor to support the citizens and non-profit community in Boulder County and the local region. We do this by providing technical education and technical support.
The BCN membership of volunteers (we are all volunteers) embraces people from all walks of life and experience. We are diverse in many ways, but tend to lean to the technical side of all things computerized.

If you believe that you would like to volunteer in community service, but feel less effective in technical realms, we suggest that you investigate the resources of the Volunteer Connection.
