Marrakech accepts volunteers for both short and long-term projects. Anyone interested in volunteering must complete a Volunteer application and may be subject to criminal background checks. Below are ways an interested person may volunteer:
Community Service Projects
Corporations or individuals may request to complete a community service project at Marrakech. This may involve a one-day event (like a Day of Caring) or completion of a required amount of hours. Community service projects vary, are based on the need of the organization, and may take place in any program or department within the organization.
Taking Initiative Center
Individuals or groups are needed to prepare, deliver, and serve a hot meal at 1:00 pm on Sunday afternoons to individuals at the Taking Initiative Center. The meals should feed 22 people plus the volunteers that day.
East Street Arts
Volunteers assist artisans with their work in seat weaving and textile weaving and assist with finishing products before going into the store by ironing, pricing, and sewing.
Quality of Life Activities
Marrakech is dedicated to providing opportunities to access recreational and fitness activities, to learn new hobbies or skills, to make friends and to participate fully in community life for the people it serves. To this end, the Quality of Life Services staff coordinates a monthly calendar of events filled with fun and learning opportunities. Volunteers are needed to help run group events or to become a buddy to someone we support.
