Join our volunteer team to create walkable communities and encourage more people to walk.
Feet First is a small nonprofit. When you volunteer your time it makes a big impact on the work we do. As a volunteer or intern you’ll work side by side with staff, board, and committee members to manage projects and events.
There is a lot of room for your leadership and initiative. Steps taken by our volunteers and interns often leave a lasting and meaningful mark on the organization.
“Our team from Microsoft had one of the most fulfilling experiences working with Feet First on the Stairway project. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to give back to the community while having fun and creating something really beautiful! Thanks to Feet first for that opportunity. “Sangeetha Visweswaran, Volunteer Lead for Day of Caring Stairway Project
For current volunteers: please log all your hours spent volunteering by submitting them here (this helps the grants team, as many grantors ask how much time our volunteers donate.) Annually, volunteers log over 2,500 hours, which is impressive! We suspect the actual number is a lot higher. Help ensure we are successful receiving grants by logging your volunteer hours.
