Open Positions


Community Builders


We are always on the lookout 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 & communication 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.


Our Interns

Community Forklift offers internships over spring, summer, and fall terms depending on our staffing needs as well as applicants’ interests and skills. This is a great way for high school students, college students, or career-switchers to get an introduction to fields such as green business, sustainability, education and outreach, or administrative work. Please find some of our general guidelines below, and feel free to email Alex Winter at should you have any specific questions.

Hours per Week: At least two full days/week (16+ hours), but full-time internships also possible.

Work Environment: Both office work and outside work possible. Casual, family-friendly dress code and sturdy shoes required. Warehouse is not climate-controlled, but our offices are.

Compensation: Unpaid position.

Apply: Please send resume and cover letter to Alex Winter at Alex(at)CommunityForklift(dot)org
