As a social movement space our hope is that volunteers can help us tell our story, develop our vision, and strengthen relationships within our community. Volunteers play a vital role in bringing the mission of our project to fruition.
Individuals interested in volunteering should attend an orientation (check our calendar for upcoming dates), at which we will introduce our project, including our Space Use Statement and Sober Space Statement. Once oriented, volunteers can sign up for a variety of roles based on their skills and passions.
Firestorm has space for volunteers who are committed but flexible. Ideally, volunteers would be available at least once a month. Examples of volunteer work might include—but are not limited to—supporting grassroots programming, connecting visitors with local resources, developing or maintaining the space, flyering for community events, or reading and reviewing new books.
Because the equitable compensation of labor is part of our mission, volunteers can support Firestorm as a social movement space but will not be asked, or permitted, to act as unpaid bookstore employees.
