2. SHIFT VOLUNTEERS

Shift volunteers are reliable heroes who sign up for regularly occurring shifts as TOOL LIBRARIANS and/or SHOP MONITORS.

Here’s some of the things shift volunteers can do:

  • Check people in and out

  • Give tours and sign up new members

  • Monitor the community workshop or classes

  • Manage drop-in volunteers

  • Come up with your own pet projects to improve DTL

AND, Shift Volunteers earn DTL BUCKS, which you can use towards anything that costs money at the DTL: shop time, membership dues, memberships for friends, late fees, merch, classes, etc. PLUS Shift Volunteers are invited to join in on test-runs of our up and coming class offerings.

To become a Shift Volunteer, you please fill out this form below. We will then get back to you to schedule a quick interview and training if we’re good fits for each other.
