SHIFT needs YOU!

Meet new people. Share your skills. And have fun too!

 

As a non-profit organization, we could not offer the incredible events and workshops without the help of our volunteers. We could use your skills as event greeters/hosts, writers, group facilitators, workshop teachers, administrative skills and more. Would you consider donating an hour or two of your time to SHIFT.

Apply your talents to a short term project with SHIFT.

These are just a few of the many volunteer positions available at SHIFT.  Volunteering your time and talent is a great opportunity to make an important difference in SHIFT’s exciting future!
