Volunteer at a Retreat
Volunteers bring a range of unique and valuable skills and are essential to the operations and success of our retreats. We create an equitable community by asking all attendees, including volunteers, to take part in all aspects of the retreat. While each volunteer adopts a specific role, we also ask that they engage with the group throughout the daily schedule and assist with other roles, as needed.
*Volunteer opportunities will vary depending on our needs for each retreat
