Volunteers help with almost every aspect of running the organization and retreat center. There are a variety of ways you can get involved. Check out the volunteer opportunities below!
We are Seeking Summer Volunteers
Easton Mountain is a retreat center founded by gay men, although not limited to them. In fact, increasingly, we are proud to say, our clientele is diverse and multi-generational, and represent folks across the spectrum of sexualities.
Each year, Easton Mountain offers a variety of programs to its guests. Traditionally, volunteers work in concert with the Easton Mountain staff, as well as program facilitators, to ensure that guests experience their stay with delight, great food, engaging activities, and comfortable accommodations in a positive, supportive environment.
For Summer 2019, we’d like to recruit volunteers who are able to commit for a period of 4 to 16 weeks. Our new volunteer program provides housing and meals, work days limited to 6 hours (and often shorter), one day off per week, opportunities for offsite activities, access to programs, and a small monthly stipend.
What do volunteers do? Assist with program set-ups, marketing, front desk, clean bathrooms, support the kitchen staff, collect firewood, gardening, sauna and pool maintenance, mowing, laundry, and lodge stewardship, just to name a few. We work hard to match a volunteer’s strengths and interests with the needs of our facility.
Most importantly, volunteers have the chance to experience life “in community,” sharing their laughter and labor with others committed to a mission of social justice, fundamental freedoms, opportunities to celebrate, heal, and transform, and the integration of body, mind, and spirit.
