Volunteer

Volunteering for PEAK is a great way to help ensure that children and youth with disabilities are included and able to participate as contributing members of their schools and community!

Because almost all of PEAK’s services are provided at no cost to families, we rely on the generosity of volunteers and donors to help ensure every family in Colorado can continue to access PEAK’s services whenever they need assistance! Your donation of time and skills will strengthen Colorado families and communities!
