Volunteer

Volunteers provide a critical role in helping us deliver high quality programs. We have a variety of opportunities for volunteers to help out with, many on a weekly basis.

We have our specific opportunities listed at our Volunteer Match page for those who can commit to helping out on a weekly basis. For anyone who takes on one of these roles, we can offer free membership, access to some of our classes, and member rates to use our tools.

If you aren’t able to commit to helping out in a role or for a recurring event, consider joining our volunteer mailing list. We use that list to coordinate help at outreach events around the community that happen intermittently throughout the year.

Please note, for anyone interested in helping out with programs for kids, you will need a PA Criminal background check, Child Abuse clearance, and FBI background check. These are standard requirements for anyone working with children in the US. The Hacktory is happy to reimburse the fees associated with these documents for anyone who commits to volunteer for more than one specific session.
