Join the SCARCE Team!
Due to the pandemic, SCARCE can only accommodate individuals who are 18 or older and can volunteer on a regular basis. We are not currently scheduling in-person volunteer groups or one-time volunteer activities.

Keep valuable materials out of the landfill while providing kids, teachers, and community members with educational supplies they need to succeed. Everything you do at SCARCE will help protect our air, soil, and water.  To learn more about our volunteer opportunities, send a message to Rose at rose@scarce.org or complete the volunteer application at the bottom of this page.
