We are looking for on-call contractors, or “Community Builders,” to join our Outreach & Education team (mostly weekend work). We need extroverts who can staff our booth at street fairs and trade shows, facilitate special events, support workshop presenters in our classroom, and lead volunteer groups at our warehouse (and yes, you’ll occasionally wear silly hats or costumes!). The best candidate will have an easygoing and very outgoing personality, great time-management habits, and good record-keeping skills. Hours vary according to your availability and our needs, but our busiest seasons are weekends in April – June and September – November. Get more info or apply to be a Community Builder here.
