Looking for a fun way to spend your weekends while making a difference in your community? Look no further than our volunteer program at HGP!

We’re currently searching for outgoing and friendly individuals who are comfortable using a register and can help us cover the store during our Shift Manager’s lunch break. As a Customer Service Volunteer, you’ll be responsible for greeting customers, answering their questions, assisting at the register, restocking merchandise, and supporting the Shift Manager as needed. You’ll also be able to educate customers about HGP, upcoming events, and how they can get involved!

But before you start your volunteer shift, we’ll need you to attend one of our orientation training sessions. Don’t worry – they’re fun and informative! Once you complete your orientation, we’ll add you to our online work scheduler, where you can choose the shifts you’d like to work.

Our orientation sessions take place at our store location on 1338 Pacific Avenue. You only need to attend one orientation session to start volunteering!

Join our team and make a difference while having fun! We can’t wait to have you on board.

About our Store: Our Store is where we make a significant amount of our yearly income to support our transitional employment and job training program for folks experiencing homelessness or housing instability. Those who are in the training program make over 40 types of products using materials we grow on the farm, including food products, bath and body products, and dried-flower wreaths. Each year we have a network of over 100 volunteers who support the store. The store is, in part, volunteer-run, meaning that the profit we make goes directly toward supporting our programs and folks transitioning out of homelessness.
