Get Involved

There are many different ways to support Saratoga Joinery.

Volunteer

Volunteering with us allows you to meet like-minded people, develop your skills in a welcoming place, and support local artists. Saratoga Joinery is a community space and relies upon people like you to help build it. No experience required; training provided.

Some of our volunteer positions:

Shop Safety Coordinator

Shop Safety Coordinators work in four-hour shifts in our workshop. Their role is to supervise workshop activity to ensure all safety policies are being closely followed. If interested, a Shop Safety Coordinator may also teach our Machine Safety Training courses. In addition to overseeing the workshop, some light administrative duties may be assigned.

Shop Mentor

Shop Mentors are experts who donate their time in 2-hour increments to helping someone with their project or skill. Mentor time will be booked as a one-on-one appointment with the mentee.

Fulfilling Community Service Projects

Saratoga Joinery is a community space and we are committed to giving back to our community. We solicit service project proposals from community organizations year-round and recruit volunteers to work on these projects as a group.

Committee Work

Saratoga Joinery is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a governing board. Many organizational decisions are made through committees. Some formed committees we have are: Marketing, Membership, Safety & Operations, Special Events, and Curriculum. We are always looking for people with experience in these areas to help us in our efforts.

Teach a Class

An important part of our mission is education. We strive to offer high-quality, diverse, consistent classes in our space. Woodworking is our focus, but we are open to offering classes on a variety of crafts. We are always accepting proposals for classes and our teachers are always compensated.

If you'd like to teach a class but aren't quite ready to complete this form, you can come in and meet with the Curriculum Committee to brainstorm. Contact info@saratogajoinery.org and we'll set up a time!
