Volunteer Opportunities

We're an entirely volunteer-run operation, and we accomplish a ton when everyone pitches in a little!

We need YOUR help with...

  • Staffing our event table – Answer questions about Don't Waste Durham and its programs, take payment for our merchandise. No experience necessary - we'll show you how! Sign up for upcoming events here. (2-3 hours per month)
  • Updating website content (can be done remotely)
  • Creating signage for our event table. Involves basic printing, painting, or stenciling. We'll give you the text and buy the materials!  (can be done remotely)
  • Drafting a grant application (can be done remotely)
  • Light repairs and maintenance – changing lightbulbs, oiling squeaky hinges, etc. (involves visiting our office 1-2 hrs/mo)
  • Light technology help – setting up our new printer, researching how to set up Smart Boards, etc. (involves visiting our office 1-2 hrs/mo)
