Varied Volunteer Opportunities

Are you interested in learning more about fair trade and international economic development? Volunteer with Ten Thousand Villages and learn about what you can do locally to support fair trade around the world. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities that can be somewhat customized to fit your strengths and what you enjoy, and are open to hearing about how you may be able to help.

Sales Associate Volunteer: We rely heavily upon friendly, outgoing volunteers on our sales floor to greet and engage customers, tell artisan and product stories, and ring up purchases on the cash register. We also have projects for sales associate volunteers that can include: unpacking orders, setting/straightening up visual merchandising displays, inventory, etc. The ability to have volunteers on the sales floor as opposed to staff allow us to cut down on overhead costs and ensure that money from purchases can be reinvested in artisans rather than go toward staffing. Education Volunteer: Ten Thousand Villages is excited about our mission and want to spread the word! Education volunteers can help to prepare and give presentations about fair trade and Ten Thousand Villages to community organizations, schools, and universities. If you have a background or interest in education, this is for you! While these are established volunteer opportunities, we are excited to hear your ideas about how you may contribute. Do you have a background in marketing? Love it! Are you technology and social media savvy? We need you! Interested in learning how to run a small business? Learn here!
