Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to create a cooperative community workshop in Rochester, New York. The cooperative community workshop will allow its members to pool their skills, knowledge and resources and will provide an affordable space for the community to learn and practice these various crafts and trades.
- We’re an educational organization - we teach people how to use tools and to make things because they learn useful skills, problem solving, perseverance and to plan ahead. We also encourage interest in the skilled trades, engineering, science, technology and the arts.
- We improve the quality of life in Rochester - many people enjoy spending their leisure time making, fixing or creating things, and being around others who share their interests. We help make that possible by providing low cost access to tools and workspace that the entire community can use. We also provide free programs and services to the community.
- We want to help new businesses get started - we hope to encourage entrepreneurship by creating a large community of smart, creative and experienced people with many different skills, and giving them access to workspace and sophisticated tools.
- We’re nonprofit and run by volunteers - we keep our costs low and carefully use our member’s dues and the donations we receive.
