Want to be a regular volunteer at Port City Makerspace? Our elite team of volunteers is looking for new members and we want you to apply! Makerspace volunteers manage the shop, maintain tools, organize and clean, and are extremely important members of our community. As a Weekly Volunteer, you will be at the shop for a 2 or 4-hour shift and help out with upkeep and helping out members.
Do you have experience with a specific tool? Do you use a certain part of the shop a lot as a member? Help us take care of it!
As a Resource Manager, you will help take care of a particular piece of equipment or area of the shop. There is no time commitment, just the expectation to check on the resource regularly and make it sure it is in top shape!
One of the most important roles here are the Shop Managers. These are the volunteers that spend a lot of efforts making a shop space the best that it can be – keeping it clean and organized, making sure tools are operational and tuned up, and assisting with tool training and classes. Due to the high expectations, we do offer a membership perk as thanks for the hard work these volunteers do.
