Ongoing Volunteering Needs:

Editing: Help us edit our media, from audio to videos; or help us organize our archives.

Events: We are always in need of people power! Whether it’s event setup, managing activity stations, event cleanup, or organizing, there’s always space for helping hands.

General: It takes a village to run a non-for-profit, so we always appreciate those that can aid us in construction, gardening, janitorial duties, organization, etc..

Production: At the Sanctuary, we produce a variety of media! We would love experienced help in running audio, cameras, lights, video, and anything else our production team might require.

*We are willing to train those interested

Promotion: Spread the word about the Sanctuary through posting and sharing brochures, flyers, newsletters, social media posts, and all other promotional materials.
