Group volunteering refers to groups from different schools, organizations, or vocational programs that come to Free Geek to learn life and job skills, or just volunteer. They come usually once per week, and have counselors with them that have been trained on different jobs in the recycling area. Some groups have their students check in and later log their hours on their own, other groups might hand a list of students and the hours worked to a front desk person to be entered.

Please note: Groups that want to do the Build Program need to talk to the Director of Production, or should be asked to sign up as individuals. We may not be able to host group volunteering for the Build Program.

Groups must volunteer for a minimum of 1.5 hours per session.

Process for volunteering as a group:

  1. Group applies through email correspondence through info@ email list.
  2. Group Volunteering coordinator contacts group leader (John or Darryl for adoption, Darren for Build and other areas), coordinates group volunteering schedule, arranges for leader to come in to Free Geek for a tour and training in area of interest, sends group leader links to our online volunteer orientation packet, volunteer applications, and group volunteering information sheet.
  3. Group volunteer coordinator schedules group tour. If the group is larger than 4 people, an individualized, abbreviated tour may be arranged. GV coordinator will schedule tour guide, or will be the tour guide.
  4. Group comes in for tour and hands in already-completed volunteer applications.
  5. Group begins volunteering, hands in time sheet at the end of each volunteer experience.
  6. Group leader or volunteer coordinator may schedule a meeting after the first couple of sessions to discuss issues related to group volunteering.

Feel free to ask our Director of Public Services if you have any questions.

Group volunteering is tracked through this wiki page. Each listing should be titled with the day of the week, the time, and the name of the group. Summer volunteer groups should be titled Summer, day of week, time, name of group.

See the Group Volunteering Policy for more details
