As a nonprofit, fair trade retail organization, the success of Ten Thousand Villages largely depends on the commitment and enthusiasm of volunteers! Each volunteer brings special strengths and insights to the operation of the store. This will be a rewarding experience for all who participate!
We appreciate volunteers who are comfortable greeting customers, telling artisan stories, presenting products and operating the cash register. You may also restock the inventory, straighten or rearrange displays, or do inventory counts. Even if you are not comfortable with these duties, there are behind the scenes opportunities like assisting with merchandise unpacking, cleaning, inventory counts, etc.
Volunteers are asked to commit a minimum of 8 hours a month. This is the amount of time it takes to stay
familiar with the store and its procedures. Volunteer shifts are 2 - 4 hours long, and volunteers can sign up for shifts that that work with their schedule using an online system.
We'll work with your schedule.
