Volunteer

YES! There are a million ways you can help.

We LOVE volunteers and we want you to get involved where your interests lie. We work with you to get plugged into any of our projects, at any level of time commitment that works for you.

To get started:

1. Volunteer Orientation
We require new volunteers to attend an orientation because we want to get to know you, show you what we’re all about, and to figure out your specific interests.

Check our calendar for the next orientation.

2. Get Plugged In

Once you’ve attended the orientation, we’ll work together to find a place for you at Make.Shift. You could staff office hours, help run our programs, or be a part of our small army of volunteers that we call upon to help out when we have events like benefits or work parties. Whatever works for you!

What kinds of tasks can I help with?

All kinds! Here are a few common tasks our volunteers typically help with. Take a look and be sure to let us know what sparks your interest:

Staff the door or sound booth at our live music shows
Represent Make.Shift by tabling at an event
Help us keep Make.Shift Art Space sparkly (regular cleaning is a BIG help)
Fix and build things at the Art Space!
Ask local business for sponsorships
Staff the gallery at Art Walk
Plan a fundraiser event
Write a grant proposal
Staff an office hours shift at Make.Shift

Please email volunteer@makeshiftproject.com if you are interested in attending an orientation and getting involved. We look forward to hearing from you!
