WEES Volunteer Resources Program provides excellent and unique opportunities for volunteers to assist the work of WEES by providing vital volunteer support to meet our goals, mission, vision, and plans.

Our volunteers assist with a wide variety of projects including special events, public programs, fundraising, off-site promotions, research projects, boards and committees, gardening, building bird houses, and much more.

WEES volunteers are: pre-teens, teens, high school and college students, foreign students, partnerships, educators, artists, home engineers, photographers, environmentalists, young professionals, business experts, technical experts, families, and retirees. If you have expertise that we could make use of or you'd just like to help out, please give us a call.

Our volunteers are the cornerstone of WEES.  Without them, we could not accomplish what we set out to do each year.

Volunteer Opportunities:

We are looking for volunteers to help with our upcoming WEES Casino on April 19th and 20th 2017. 
Seems like a long ways away at this point, but volunteer names, forms, etc. need to be submitted 60 days prior to the event. No later than Feb. 17, 2017.

No one is allowed to work more than one position during the casino, but can work both days if they choose to. 
In order to volunteer for the event, you must be over 18 years of age. 

This is one of our major fundraising efforts and the money goes to support our programs. We hope you will seriously consider volunteering your time. If you know of someone who has some spare time and enjoys working casinos, please let us know. We will get back to you with what positions are available and more details.
