Volunteering

 

So you want to volunteer at Grassroots. Awesome.

If you are new to our community, we encourage you to spend 6 months getting to know people, building connections in the community, and really getting a grasp of the mission and vision that we’re striving for. Once you’ve been a part of Grassroots for 6 months, fill in the Ministry Application Form and then wait for further instructions from our Volunteer Coordinator, Heather Denis, on what the next steps are.

We believe that volunteering is one of the best ways for you to get connected and involved with the Grassroots community. Below are some opportunities that might be perfect for you. Keep in mind that the requirement/frequency for each position varies depending on the number of volunteers available.
