Answer phones and give general information about Habitat for Humanity and other office tasks. An historian is needed to assemble newspaper clippings, photos, and gather details of past home projects.

Mentors and more

Women interested in working with girls setting goals for a brighter future are needed. Mentors, tutors, drivers and office support are all needed to help integrate socially isolated adolescent girls into the community, teach them important life skills and empower them to complete their education and lead responsible lives.

Police volunteers

Join the active group of volunteers whose partnership with the Grass Valley Police Department support and supplement services thus freeing sworn officers to perform other duties and tasks.

Project coordinators

Artisans of all disciplines are invited to join the “Save Our Local History Project.” Craftsmen with backgrounds in woodwork, ironwork, or interior architecture are just examples of the variety of talents needed. This project is designed to bring into Nevada County classrooms a historical perspective of the importance of these fields of art.

Mailing team

Volunteers who would be interested in short-term assignments that are flexible and fun are urged to call now and join our mailing team. This is a great way to get out and meet new people while providing an important service to a wide variety of community nonprofit agencies.

Friendly visitors

The Friendly Visitors and Telephone Reassurance program is seeking new volunteers to meet the needs of homebound or socially isolated seniors. A 90-year-old lady in Penn Valley would enjoy a visitor to share her interest in current events and community activities. A visitor who could call an 86-year-old lady living three miles above Nevada City would decrease her lonely times due to giving up driving.
