Volunteering

Volunteering
Except for teacher’s pay, Tam Makers is a volunteer-run organization. We’re grateful to all our generous volunteers who support our community and bring life to our shop!

Especially we thank those of you who helped out this spring to clean and organize the shop as we make our transition to our new sponsors.

We find camaraderie in working together on projects outside of the usual classes and workshops. At Tam Makers, volunteer opportunities range from simple one-time tasks, through periodic responsibilities, to ongoing positions.

This year, you can support Tam Makers by helping with these tasks or positions:

      • Expanding our Program

        • Youth Opportunities
        • A fuller schedule for Adult access
      • Creating a skill certification system
      • Social Media & Web Coordinator
      • Volunteer Coordinator

Read more below, or email Geo if you would like to help with these or other tasks:  info@tammakers.org

Here are some of the things volunteers did this spring:

    • Determine the best locations for various tools.
    • Make defined places for tools and supplies.
    • Create a system for keeping tools in place.
    • Sort and label parts and supplies.
    • Organize basement storage.
    • Sweeping and vacuuming
  • Create a skill certification system – We want to provide ongoing training and to acknowledge people for their skill levels. This program will help keep us safe and will give us more flexibility in how classes are offered and how the shop can be used. You will work closely with Geo. This program includes a record keeping system, revised tool usage guides, instructional videos and skill assessments. Contact Geo to participate.
