Volunteer Orientation

Volunteers attend a one hour orientation at which you will learn about our mission, tour our facility, review shift schedules
and complete a volunteer application. Volunteer Groups such as schools or organizations are not required to attend volunteer orientation.
Please check our calendar for the next available orientation. If you would like to schedule a group project
or have questions contact our Director of Volunteer Services at 303-665-4342 ×142

Community Service

The Sister Carmen Community Center Thrift Store is a great place to help
your community and complete your court-ordered or Workforce community service hours.

Community Service Orientation must be completed before accrual of hours may begin. We are not able to assist with the completion of hours of services for offenses related to theft or violence. Please contact your attorney or case manager for other community service options

Community Service Orientation

If you have attended orientation and/or accrued hours of service at SCCC in the past, you may need to attend orientation again if one of the following applies to you: 1) you have not accrued service hours at SCCC within the last two months but need more hours to complete your service, or 2) you have accrued hours at SCCC in the past but incurred additional court ordered hours from a new violation. You will need to attend orientation for each new offense.

30-minute, drop-in orientations are offered
every Saturday & Sunday from 12 – 12:30 pm
Please arrive on time for orientation.

Community Service Orientation is held at:

SCCC Thrift Store
701 W. Baseline Rd.
Lafayette, CO

Additional parking spaces can be found next door at the Lafayette Public Library.
(Check our calendar for information about weather or emergency closures.)
