We'll volunteer for you & You can volunteer for us
FFI Volunteering For YOU
We hold service learning as a core value for our programs. Every team in our programs completes at least one significant and meaningful volunteer activity.
Day-of volunteer: These are one-time volunteer opportunities on the day of the event. These activities vary by event and range from registering guests and handing out t-shirts to running a 50/50 raffle and monitoring a putting green competition.
Ways for volunteers to take part in our programs include:
Joining a group on a mountain hike or other team-building activity
Give a tour of your school, organization, or work place
Hosting a group dinner at your home, or sponsoring a dinner out
Offering your residence or vacation home to host the group for their time here
Organizing a group community service project or multi-cultural activity
Soliciting local grocery stores or gas stations for in-kind donations
Originally installed in 2015 and recently revived and enlarged in 2017, the Friends Forever International Peace Garden is a true community garden, which could never have been built without the hard work, resources, and dedication of our wonderful volunteers! All of our supporters are welcome & encouraged to visit as our produce grows, and to take some home with them.
We are currently looking for a dedicated team or organization to take on the day-to-day care of the garden. If you are interested in being a part of this team, please contact Katiemae at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer Events generally occur once a quarter for our newsletter mailings, although we also host others for special event mailings and other projects.
