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.

Event Volunteers

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.


Program Volunteers

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 workplace

  • 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


Garden Volunteers

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 garden grows and take some vegetables home. 

We are currently looking for a dedicated team or organization to take on the garden's day-to-day care. If you are interested in being a part of this team, please contact Amelia at
