The Folk School in Fairbanks is looking for volunteer hosts to open our cabin and small store to visitors during the summer season.

Duties will include:

  • Staffing the store in our log cabin at Pioneer Park, selling locally made crafts, and greeting visitors
  • Preparing the cabin for upcoming classes
  • Are you an artisan? We love to have folks in the cabin, demonstrating their craft.
And doing other things is possible, depending on your interests and time. Our intention is that this will be an interesting, fun position, where you help people learn about The Folk School and maybe teach visitors something interesting.
