Are There Volunteer Opportunities for
Groups or Teams?

Yes, SCRAP is a great place to bring a team to engage in meaningful, hands-on work that truly benefits the community. Teams can engage in projects such as sorting and organizing materials, making improvements to the depot or special projects developed with the specifics skills or interest of the team in mind.

In the past, teams have also engaged in creative team - building challenges using materials in the depot. These activities would be developed by your team or your own team - facilitator, with access to SCRAP's workshop area and materials depot.

Please not that we have not had a group volunteer activity since 2020 due to COVID. Now that we are opening back up, we are open to volunteer opportunities or teams in the near future. Please email
