Volunteer or teach

Our youth-facing volunteer opportunities are limited as we prefer to maintain a core group of trained instructors. However, we occasionally enlist a small group of volunteers to help with events, outreach, fundraising, and related program support. If you’re interested in lending a hand with these tasks, shoot us an email. If you have a skillset in carpentry, welding, or graphic printmaking, AND experience working with youth, please send us your resume for consideration for our after-school or summer teaching positions! Contact for volunteer or teaching positions: Maya Vilaplana, Program Assistant, info@girlsgarage.org
