Ten Thousand Villages, a Fair Trade non-profit retailer, is seeking motivated volunteers to engage with customers and share the Ten Thousand Villages mission; help them find what they are looking for and make their purchases.
Ten Thousand Villages is more than a store. We're a global maker‑to‑market movement that breaks the cycle of generational poverty and ignites social change. We're a way to shop with intention for ethically-sourced wares. As a pioneer of fair trade, we do business differently, putting people and planet first. That means you can trust that every handmade purchase and donation made directly impacts the life and community of its maker in a developing country.
Why volunteer with Ten Thousand Villages? Here are some of the benefits:
Knowledge that you are helping artisans around the world
20% volunteer discount
Flexible scheduling (3 hour shifts that you choose)
Quality training and education opportunities
Laid-back atmosphere and friendly team

Ten Thousand Villages' mission is to create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term fair trading relationships.
The company strives to improve the livelihood of tens of thousands of disadvantaged artisans in 38 countries. Ten Thousand Villages accomplishes this by establishing a sustainable market for handmade products in North America, and building long term buying relationships in places where skilled artisan partners lack opportunities for stable income. Product sales help pay for food, education, healthcare and housing for artisans who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed.
