CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES

This is a list of the most up-to-date and timely opportunities to join this work of welcoming.

Home at 906 Volunteer
Organize a few friends or just come over yourself one afternoon to the Treetops space on Division Ave to help us landscape, clean, organize, and decorate the space we call home and where program members come together for workshops. If you love making things tidy, creating welcoming spaces, and have a knack for organizing this would be a fun role for you.

Design Volunteer
We are entering a new season of growth and exciting opportunities. That means we need to communicate all these changes and developments well. We could use the help of 1-2 dedicated graphic designers or tech savvy friends to help us design pieces that convey our mission and spread welcome to more people. We will work with you to determine how much time you can invest and what kinds of projects would be right for you.

ONGOING VOLUNTEER ROLES

We are always looking for welcoming volunteers to fill these roles. Our work is only possible because of this larger collective of welcoming neighbors.

Volunteer Driver
1-2 days per month, 2-3 hours each month
Volunteer Drivers within our Sister Circles program make it possible for New Americans to attend workshops on important topics like education, personal health, American systems, community leadership, financial management and much more. Volunteer Drivers will pick up teen girls from school or women from their home and bring them to the Treetops Collective makerspace in time for workshops, then bring them safely home afterward.

Volunteers Drivers are asked to keep availability open as possible on Fridays 2:15-2:50 pm and 7:00-8:00 pm to partner with us during our teen girls workshops. And/or every other month on alternating Saturdays or Sundays 8:00-9:00 am and 2:30-3:30 pm to partner with us during our women’s workshops.


Childcare Provider
One day every other month
Childcare Volunteers within our Sister Circles program make it possible for New American moms to attend workshops on important topics like education, personal health, American systems, community leadership, financial management and much more. Childcare Volunteers will care for children while moms connect with one another, engage with guest speakers, and dream about the future for their families together.

Childcare Volunteer times are every other month from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm and 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm, on alternating Saturdays and Sundays. Stay for the whole day, or work just one shift. We can fit you in where it works for your schedule.


Hospitality Volunteer
1-2 days per month, 2-3 hours each month
Hospitality Volunteers have the opportunity to serve meals at Sister Circles Program workshops so program members can share a meal together while gathering as friends and family. Volunteers will at times provide the food and at times simply pick up food from a local restaurant, then provide drink and food service to the group of 17-30 program members, Treetops team members, and volunteers.


Social Enterprise Volunteer
As needed and able
Be put on a short list of people to work with us in our makerspace and at community events, both with New Americans and with other volunteers. This role includes providing support such as selling our goods at pop-up shops, tagging products, running open retail hours, counting inventory, pricing products, organizing our makerspace, and much more.


Cross-Cultural Partner
9 month commitment, February-October, 4 hours per month
Cross-Cultural Partners within our Sister Circles program walk alongside New American women and teen girls as friends and allies. Partners meet one-on-one with program members once a week for the 9 month long program. You will experience life together, meet in each other’s homes and other mutual places, meet family members, attend Treetops’ Creative Gatherings, share meals, practice English and go on excursions around Grand Rapids.
