Have a few hours?
Drop in on a Flex Project!
Are you looking for a quick and easy way to get engaged in community service? Volunteer Marin’s Flexible Volunteer Program is here to help!
The Flex Program is a calendar of recurring, group-friendly, volunteer projects managed by Volunteer Marin in partnership with local nonprofits. Flex provides the perfect way for busy people of all ages to volunteer in a fun, meaningful setting. Flex Projects require no ongoing commitment and often take place on evenings and weekends outside of traditional work and school hours. This makes volunteering easy to do anytime!
Involve hands-on, direct service activities
Require no ongoing commitment
Require no previous experience or training
Occur on a regular schedule for at least 3 months (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly)
Often are family-friendly and group-friendly (Volunteers under 14 must be accompanied by an adult and volunteers under 18 must complete a youth waiver signed by a parent/guardian)
Are led by trained Project Leaders who oversee on-site activities at each project, keep you informed, and answer questions
Can be used to fulfill community service requirements for court or school
Whether you're interested in volunteering with seniors, youth, animals, plants or paintbrushes, you can find something that is right for you! Here's how to get started:
1. Create a volunteer account on www.volunteermarin.org
Once your account is created, you can sign up for projects, create a volunteer team, track your volunteer hours, and more! Click Here for instructions on how to create a team.
2. Browse the Project Calendar
Any project with “[Flex]” in the title is a Flex Project managed by Volunteer Marin. Although any nonprofit may post a done-in-a-day project on our calendar, Flex Projects are the only projects led by trained Volunteer Marin Projects Leaders who will provide you and your volunteer team with expert communication and support before, during, and after your service.
3. Sign up as an individual or with a group
Volunteering is just a click away with the Flex Program. Sign up on your own, or sign up as group on behalf of your scout troop, rotary club, greek organization, church, business, or other team. Location details and other information will be sent to you via email by your Project Leader. For more information about group volunteering, Click Here.
4. Come back again and again!
Although Flex Projects don’t require an ongoing commitment, many of them occur on a weekly or bi-weekly basis so you have the opportunity to return to a favorite project again and again!
