Volunteer Opportunities


Work with the refugee Artisans, Help at Sales Events, Work in our studio!

The Artisan Team spends time working directly with the refugee artisans on product development, materials selection, quality control and encouragement. 

The Events Team focuses mainly on staffing The Community Cloth sales booths at all of the fun events. We train you on our easy sales procedure.

The Studio Team helps behind-the-scenes with admin and sundry small tasks that keep the program well-oiled!
