Looking for a way to give back locally while making a positive impact globally? Volunteer at Global Gifts! We're a nonprofit fair trade shop located in the vibrant Short North Arts District and we're holding a Volunteer Orientation on Saturday, May 8th from 10:00-11:00 a.m. at our store (682 N. High St.).

A diverse group of volunteers and interns work alongside a small staff to: assist customers, ring up sales, check in orders, create visual displays, help host special events, and more. It's a great way to learn more about fair trade, fair trade handicrafts, cultures of the global south, and more.

Message us if you have questions or if you're interested but can't make our scheduled orientation. We look forward to meeting you!
