Denver Volunteer Employee Opportunities (DEVO) Logo

  • Are you a Denver City Employee wanting to make a difference in our community?
  • Do you want to feel a greater sense of value and personal satisfaction?
  • Are you looking for ways you can help make Denver a better place to live?
  • Would you like to team up with co-workers, family members, and friends to get involved?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then DEVO WANTS YOU!

DEVO offers city employees a unique opportunity to work on non-government, community based activities and projects.  DEVO is a GREAT way to give back to our community!  To our knowledge, no other city or county has anything like it.  Our mission is to establish and organize charitable volunteer opportunities for Denver City Employees and their families by promoting employee engagement while strengthening our community.  If you'd like to get involved and participate in one of our events please e-mail us at and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest information on upcoming events.
