Volunteer Opportunities at EC3

Posted on by Elisabeth Weston

There are many ways to be active within the EC3 community. Since we’re a family cooperative organization, we rely on our families to support us in more ways than just paying tuition. We need help with things around the building and grounds so we don’t have to pay an outsider to do them. Many of the activities don’t even require an organized event–here are a number of yard work projects that you can tackle anytime. (You’ll need to bring your own tools, but if you come on a scheduled work day we’ll have coffee and treats to thank you with!)
