If you don't see your dream role on the list, let us know what you like to do!
THIS IS HOW YOU BATTLE CLIMATE CHANGE
Carbon emissions, resource depletion, social inequities, environmental injustice - it's a lot.
What can can one person do?
You can start here at SKTL. You don't need to be magic with a sawzall; all you need is the desire to make the world better for yourself and your neighbors. You can sign up for a shift at a recycling event, help us clean, sort and add tools to our inventory, or spend a few hours a month on a planning committee. There are plenty of options to help out from home too. Every hour you give as a SKTL volunteer helps reduce waste and pollution, increase equitable distribution of resources, expand sustainable, eco-friendly practices in households, businesses and community spaces, and empower local folks - through access to tools and training, so they can make the world better along with you.
Your actions matter. VOLUNTEER WITH SKTL.
