If you would like to volunteer one or two times:

  1. Contact Iskashitaa at volunteer@iskashitaa.org or at 520-440-0100 to schedule a time to come and volunteer.  Often one time volunteers come to harvest (Wednesday and Friday mornings) or to food workshops.

  2. If you are planning on harvesting, please fill out the volunteer waiver

RECURRING VOLUNTEER

If you would like to volunteer on a recurring basis:

  1. Complete and submit a volunteer application online. The Volunteer Coordinator will respond to your application via email, letting you know when you are able to begin.

  2. Ask two professional and one personal reference to complete the volunteer reference form.  Forms can either be submitted electronically or printed (click to download) and mailed to our office. 

  3. If you are planning on harvesting, please fill out the volunteer waiver

  4. Attend one of our monthly volunteer orientations (Iskashitaa 101). Note: You can begin volunteering prior to attending this training, but we do request that all of our committed volunteers make it a priority to anticipate in this training workshop at the earliest convenience.

  5. After we receive your application and reference forms, the Volunteer Coordinator will match you with a specific program based upon your schedule, our needs, and your skills/passions.

  6. For volunteer drivers, Iskashitaa requires a copy of the driver's driving record, proof of insurance, and a copy of the driver's license.  If you have a vehicle and would be willing to transport volunteers or refugees, please scan these documents and email them to volunteer@iskashitaa.org or bring them to our office when you come to volunteer.  A copy of your driving record can be found here: https://servicearizona.com/webapp/citizenMVR/begin.do
