We gladly accept volunteers here at Goatlandia and have several different ways you can help out. We have regular weekly shifts that run 9am - 11:30am at our Santa Rosa “Olivet” location, and 9am - 1030 at our Sebastopol “Lone Pine” location . You can sign up for any day of the week except Sunday, and come that day to work. We usually have 2-3 people on these shifts each day at Olivet, and 1-2 at Lone Pine. We do ask for a 12 week minimum commitment.
Alternatively, if you are unable to commit to a regular volunteer shift, you can sign up to volunteer on a one time basis only. These are scheduled by appointment at a time that works for you and for our team. Let me know which of these interests you and we’ll set it up.
And lastly, we do accept volunteers for all other kinds of work; food prep for events or working offsite community events with our team, light bookkeeping, administrative tasks, social media work, etc. Whatever skill you may have that you’d like to share as a volunteer, we’d love to have the help.
As far as volunteer age requirement, our minimum age for someone to volunteer is 12 years of age, and children from 12-17 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in order to volunteer. Anyone 18 years of age or older can volunteer solo. We do require all volunteers to sign a Volunteer Release of Liability Waiver Form, and we require folks wanting to volunteer on a regular basis to complete a Volunteer Application.
If you are interested in volunteering, please download our Volunteer Application below and send it back to us and we can find a way for you to help.
