We are looking for volunteers interested in helping supervise our makerspace community. Responsibilities include spreading enthusiasm for making, giving people advice on their projects when they ask and helping people stay safe while using our tools. While the most significant benefit comes from becoming part of our community, volunteers can also gain access to the spaces and tools.

While we would love to get help from already experienced makers, we would also be more than excited to help you, as a volunteer, become an experienced maker yourself!

Benefits of Volunteering:

  • Become a community member and meet a myriad of awesome people

  • Get access to the makerspace community common areas

  • Learn all about modern manufacturing from 3D printing & CNC machining to blacksmithing and sewing

  • Help others learn and grow

Expectations of a Volunteer: 

  • Log at least 12 hours per month volunteering in the makerspaces in any number of capacities

  • Willingness to learn from others

  • Excited about teaching, accepting of diversity

  • Attend quarterly meetings

  • Familiarity with working in a shared environment

  • Desire to assist in building a shop and educational makerspace community

Additionally, there are many tasks we could use help and advice on outside of manufacturing.  These include:

  • Website updates and developing content  

  • Contributing to our marketing committee 

  • Equipment repair and maintenance, shops oversight

  • Help with a construction/deconstruction project  

  • Manage and organize a shop improvement project  

  • Assist with various programs, workshops and classes  

  • Machine shop support and supervision  

  • 3D printing project design support and printer operation.

Or even teach!  Everyone has some bit of knowledge worth sharing :)
