Volunteer

Volunteers are important to Austin Creative Reuse and we offer a variety of ways to become involved in the organization.

  • Core Volunteer
  • Occasional Volunteer
  • Volunteer Groups
  • Workshop instructors

Core Volunteers

If you are interested in volunteering on a consistent basis, consider becoming a core volunteer. Core Volunteers assist in the Center to sort and price materials and assist customers and workshop attendees.  Complete the Volunteer Application Form, the applications are reviewed every Tuesday.

Occasional Volunteer

For occasional opportunities and special projects, please check our calendar or sign up for our volunteer newsletter.

View the list of upcoming volunteering opportunities 

You can also attend a volunteer planned activity event.  These are held every Monday from 9:30am-12:00pm and every Tuesday from 6:00pm-8:30pm.  No need to register, although it is helpful to let us know you will be attending by emailing us. Families with children ages 10+ are invited to volunteer together during these events. Parents/guardians must remain with their children and be engaged with the volunteering task for the duration of the session.  Each adult may volunteer with up to two children and is responsible for the supervision and safety of the children they are with.

Volunteer Groups

We love hosting external volunteer groups! We have projects for all ages and levels, both in house volunteering and kits you can take to your group.  If your school, community service, religious, corporate or other type of group is interested in helping us out, please contact us at volunteer@austincreativereuse.org

Workshop Instructor

If you are an artist and would like to teach a workshop, please complete the application and we’ll be in touch.

Additional Information

  • For parents of children 3-14 years old, please check out Little Helping Hands. They coordinate additional volunteer opportunities for us.
  • Young people 16+ may volunteer at the Center with the approval of a parent or guardian. All volunteers must apply through our website, and attend one of our volunteer orientation sessions prior to scheduling a shift.
