Volunteering

The Montrose Office of Business and Tourism (OBT) is pleased to announce the development of the Champion Volunteer Program in support of the downtown Montrose Visitor Center at 107 South Cascade Avenue. The office is open to the public Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., with extended hours of operation in the summer. The OBT is aiming to offer exceptional guest services and information and needs assistance from the local community as well as volunteers to meet the growing needs of special events.

While volunteers provide valuable guest services, other tasks may include business communication, itinerary development, special event assistance, display development, etc. Volunteer assignments will depend on your expressed interest and expertise.

How do you know if you would be a good fit for the OBT? Just ask yourself these questions:
  • Are you familiar with the natural resources of the area?
  • Do you know where to find that perfect gift?
  • Have you enjoyed a majority of the restaurants in town?
  • Do you enjoy hiking, biking or any other recreation in the region?
  • Are you enthusiastic about Montrose and the surrounding area and are you passionate about sharing your zeal?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above then the Montrose OBT would like to invite you to become a member of our champion volunteer group. Please call Jennifer at 240-1435 or email the OBT.

The OBT will offer educational opportunities, local tours and more to keep volunteers engaged and enhance the learning environment. Volunteer hours completed earn you a slot in our volunteer champion “Familiarization” rewards program. Rewards may include lodging, retail, dining, or activity vouchers within Montrose and the Southwest Travel Region of Colorado.
