Here are some ways you can offer your skills for the love of the Seed:
As a Front Desk Volunteer you are the initial friendly face for new and existing members. This role will put you in the realms of customer service and requires you to be mindful of communications, administration, and public relations. In this position, you have the responsibility to combine smile with substance. You will need to project warmth with service orientation, active listening, coordination and time management. You will play a crucial role in supporting the teacher to prepare for class. Fill out an application and put your preference as front desk volunteer!
Ever wonder how our beautiful posters get placed around Sacramento? We have volunteers who donate their time weekly to ride around the city and hand out flyers. This is a pretty sweet gig, as you get to ride your bike around and stop by delicious restaurants and coffee houses while sharing our mission with people you meet! Interested? When you fill out an application, put this role down as your preference.
Want to bring yoga into your life in other ways? The practice of “Saucha,” or purity, might be the way for you! We ask our cleaning crew volunteers to commit to 1 day a week to clean for about 1-2 hours. Other options in this realm would be taking our blankets, wash clothes, and bolster covers home to wash and return promptly. Fill out an application and let us know this is your choice for volunteering!
Are you personable? Do you love the Yoga Seed and could you talk about it for hours? Join our tabling crew and help spread the word. Regular tabling events happen every other week at 1.5 hours a week, M-F anytime from 9a-1p, you can choose the time that works for you. This position requires some mobility to get to the location with tabling supplies. Perfect for being outside and meeting awesome people in the community, this role is essential for bringing in new folks. If this sounds like a good fit for you, indicate it on your application.
Have you see the colorfully designed fliers all over town? This is how people learn about our events and often how we introduce brand new yogis to our space. We need graphic designers to commit to creating 2-4 flyers per month. This requires proficiency in Adobe Photoshop and you must have the program on your own computer. Proficiency in Illustrator preferred but not required. If you are a graphic designer interested in this role, let us know in your volunteer application!
Want an opportunity to get creative while volunteering? We are always looking for people interested in helping with marketing and social media reach. Specifically we want volunteers to draft posts for us to use on Facebook, share on the internet, Twitter, Instagram, etc.. Let us know that this is the role you want in your application!
Did you know the Yoga Seed is a part of the American River Parkway Foundation’s Mile Stewards Program? This means our community spends at least 20 hours every quarter cleaning up the American River Parkway at Sailor Bar–the last bit of “natural” spawning habitat available to our American river salmon! The river clean up takes place every second Sunday of the month. Come join us and meeting amazing karma yogis in your community. No application necessary, just show up. More information can be found on Workshop listings HERE.
Want to give back but don’t have a lot of time? That’s okay, no act of karma is too small. Has the Yoga Seed changed your life? We want to hear about it. Send a testimonial and a photo if you are brave. We would like to highlight your experience. Thank you for sharing your truth so that others may fully realize their own. Send your testimonial to: firstname.lastname@example.org subject line: testimonial!
