Generator seeking more Front Desk volunteers

Hey y’all,

We’ve had a few volunteers abandon their shifts because of unforeseen scheduling conflicts

We’re looking for a handful of new volunteers to help keep Generator open by running the front desk!

Volunteers commit to a regular 3-hour shift at the front desk every week. The current volunteer period runs through the end of the calendar year, so this is a weekly commitment through December 31st (except for days we close for holidays – see the Member Calendar for specific dates).

Volunteer members receive a $55/month discount on membership in exchange for their weekly shift, and there are myriad soft benefits, too. Volunteers get a front row seat to some of the interesting projects members are working on and sometimes even getting the opportunity to learn from/help out members and staff. Volunteers have also been known to grow into other roles at Generator, from Shop Leads to part-time PPE workers to instructors.

We need folks to cover:

  • Friday 9-12
  • Saturday 12-3
  • Saturdays 9-12, 12-3, 3-6, 6-9
  • Sundays 9-12, 12-3, 3-6, 6-9

(We currently have single coverage on weekends, but we like to have double in case a volunteer needs to call out for some reason)

If you’re interested, submit an application here:

Hi Christine,
I could take the Friday 9-12 shift.

We would also still be available occasionally to sub.
