Sign-up procedure: We’re back to using the Volunteer Spot website, to help manage the increasing number of volunteers. Click here to sign in, choose an open shift and be at the shop ready to work at your chosen time. To maintain safety and be sure everyone has something useful to do, we’re limiting volunteers to 3 per shift. We work with volunteers at all skill levels, so don’t hesitate to volunteer simply because you lack construction experience. The most important qualification we look for is a willingness to learn, to take instructions from the Shop Manager and to follow all shop safety procedures.
Please come ready to work, dressed in work clothes that can get dirty or smeared with paint.
