We are now using a program for scheduling our volunteers for DECO week (between Christmas and New Year's Eve). To sign up please click here. To volunteer before then, just come by the barn on Saturday (9-2) or Sunday (10-5).
All volunteers must sign a release form before working. Release forms for anyone under 18 MUST be signed by the parent, or guardian, before the minor will be allowed to work. An adult must accompany children under age 14 at all times. Workers physically on the float or on scaffolding must be at least 16 years of age.
If you received a ride to the float building, please hold your driver until checking the volunteer work availability. There will be times where work is not available and you may be rescheduled. CD, iPod or MP3 players; and laser pointers are not allowed. All cell phones must be turned off.
Consider wearing, old warm clothes and closed toed shoes. The glue we use is NOT water-soluble, and clothes and shoes could be ruined.
Volunteers are responsible for cleaning up their workstation and tools before leaving.
We will certify high school Student Service hours for each hour worked on behalf of your high school’s volunteer/social service program. You will need to provide your Service Hour Certificate form to our Volunteer Service Coordinator after you complete work. We do not do detailed reports.
We welcome volunteers at any time as float building is a year-round job. Starting in early December, we will need many volunteers. Though we will endeavor to provide work for all volunteers, there maybe times when we have more volunteers than tasks to be performed. Under these circumstances, we will attempt to reschedule your visit to when it can be more productive and enjoyable for you. It is recommended that you call the Float Barn prior to leaving home to check on current volunteer needs. (626-355-7005)
