Volunteering at NOFA/Mass
There are several ways to volunteer with NOFA/Mass. We welcome short or long term volunteers, interns, work study students, etc.
Since NOFA/Mass started, many hundreds of volunteers have reached out to us to offer their time, skills and resources. Your gift of service, whether you have a lot of time or a little, is valuable and makes a difference.
attend outreach events on NOFA’s behalf and/or be a conduit to get NOFA literature into appropriate local outlets like college campuses, food coops, libraries, etc.
serve on event committees such as the winter and summer conferences or provide specific short term help around the time of the conferences
work as a focused work study volunteer – in the past we have had PR assistance for conferences, help with designing databases for the the bulk order, doing research on a specific topic like urban chickens, carbon research, etc.
volunteer to make phone calls when we are recruiting past attendees to the summer or winter conferences
providing specific skills such as lawyering, logo design, communications advice
serve as a member of the NOFA/Mass board of directors
offer a workshop at your farm or garden or at a NOFA conference
If you’re interested in volunteering, interning or doing a work study position with us through your university, please get in touch with our Executive Director Jocelyn Langer by email at email@example.com or phone at (413) 561-0852.
Remember, NOFA was started by volunteers like yourself; it’s what builds community!
