Volunteers are integral to Griffin’s Place and help us to make a more inclusive community!

We have many different types of volunteer opportunities. Some of the tasks are for a single person, but many can be performed by a group of friends, office colleagues, or an organization. Take a minute to review the sample list below.

To get started, please fill out this application. Once submitted, you'll be contacted by our volunteer coordinator where you'll learn more about Griffin’s Place and all our volunteer opportunities.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!


Volunteer Opportunities Available

Activity Ambassadors

We hold a number of events throughout the year that require help to greet, serve, decorate, set up/ tear down, direct participants to quiet areas, help gather feedback with surveys, and join in the fun to get everyone having a great time! We may also go on trips to the Zoo, a Hops game, or a museum and love having a large team of volunteers just to make everyone comfortable.

Environment Engineer

Many of our events require us to set up areas in shared spaces and then tear them down at the end of the event. If you can’t commit to working an entire event, or if the thought of interacting with large crowds of people makes you nervous, this would be a great role for you. This suits people who can lift and carry heavy items, move tables and chairs, and help set up things like our fun photobooths!

Awareness Expert

Work with our participants 1 or 2 hours, once a week or once a month in your area of expertise. Some ideas include: a writing, dance, yoga, meditation, knitting, hiking, bird watching, pottery, music, history, science, cooking, home and life skills, and more! If you can teach it, we want you to share!

Team Griffin’s Street Team

Work with our Activities Director to contact participants with upcoming events by phone outreach, school visits to talk to classes, or hanging flyers in local spaces.

Dream Catcher

If you have a background in fundraising, grant writing, or volunteer recruitment and management we would love to hear from you!

Creative Writing

Do you have a story to tell about your life or an idea for a blog post about things that affect you and the community? Or maybe you’ve always wanted to review films or restaurants specifically for people who may have sensory issues? Or do you love trying out new recipes and want to share them with an audience? We’d love to expand our blog to include personal stories and articles about information that is especially pertinent to the community. Reach out and pitch your ideas to us and we’d love to work with you!

Event Photographer

We at Team Griffin are ALWAYS looking for a talented photographer to capture our epic events on film! If you want to come enjoy our parties and take pictures, this is the right fit for you!
