ISLAND is holding more events than ever this year—which means we have plenty of opportunities for you to volunteer!
- Burrito Breakfast Benefit for ISLAND in Bellaire (prior to the Short's to Short's Paddle), Thursday, April 26 (cooking and cleanup, 3:00 to 4:00pm) and Friday April 27 (serving and cleanup 6:00am to 9:00am)
- Goat Skill Swap, Saturday June 23rd, East Jordan (2-3 volunteers needed for set-up, check-in, general assistance, and cleanup, times TBA)
- Food Preservation Workshops, events from June-October, time and locations vary (1 volunteer at each event for set-up, check-in, general assistance, and cleanup)
- Burger Night, Tuesday July 10, Bellaire, 4:30-9:30pm (2-5 volunteers for set-up, check-in, general assistance, and cleanup)
- Introduction to Welding, Sunday July 22, Bellaire (1 volunteer needed for set-up, check-in, general assistance, and cleanup)
- Paparazzi: Take high quality photos for our archives. You need your own digital camera and a willingness to take a few dozen shots an hour. Of course, the ability to take pictures without disrupting the event is key.
- Street Team! We need a person or two in Petoskey, Charlevoix, Elk Rapids, Traverse City, Leelanau County, Kalkaska, Grayling, etc. who can pick out a half dozen places to hang posters for upcoming events. 3-5 times a year we'll either email you PDFs to print and hang or we'll send you a small packet of posters. Take them to coffee shops, libraries, bookstores, pubs and wherever else you think folks will find out about the great events we're hosting!
- Cordwood Building and Green Roof Installation, May-August, Schedule TBA, Bellaire (at least 6 volunteers needed to hold each workbee day—bring your friends!)
Here's how it works:
- For events with an entrance fee of less than $40, volunteers get in free (plus materials fee), and get $10/hour credit towards future events.
- Arrangements are made on a case-by-case basis for those who volunteer at events that cost over $40.
