As a non-profit organization, nothing is more important to us than our volunteers.

Get involved!

We believe that the community should take ownership of their 'place'.

Be a part of an organization that encourages new ideas, inclusion, working together,
and changes the growing community around us.

We strive to treat you right, enrich your life, and have some fun. The last thing we want to do is waste your time, or give you a task you don’t want. So, if you’ll take a few minutes to look over the volunteer options and fill out the form below, we’ll find the perfect fit for you.
