Volunteer / Intern

Solar Richmond can use your help!

Want to help us spread the word about solar and to help build an inclusive green economy? Interested in gaining skills and knowledge in the solar or marketing fields, and networking with community members with similar interests?

Volunteers are a critical part of Solar Richmond’s success. We are a relatively small organization, but we can do large things with just a little outside help! We thrive off of the energy and expertise that many types of people share while volunteering some of their time with us.

There are many different ways you can become involved! Let us know your area of expertise, interest, and availability by filling out the form below.  We will contact you as soon as we have a volunteer opportunity that suits your skills and interests. In addition, you may sign up for updates about our current opportunities.

Some current volunteer opportunities include:

  • Join us for lively fundraising events!This is a fun, quick, and easy way you can contribute to building an inclusive green economy by spreading the word and raising funds for Solar Richmond.
  • General/Event Support – give general support before, after, or during events, and for specific opportunities that arise throughout the year.
    Web-based Outreach and Social Media – help us tell your friends about Solar Richmond and local opportunities.
