About Our Volunteer Program

At GRIOT Circle, our volunteers have been a vital component to the daily functioning of our organization since our very beginning in 1996. 

We often need assistance with material distribution, office work (data entry, photocopying, faxing, filing, digitizing documents, archiving materials, etc.), event support, checking-in on the wellness of our members, graphic design, outreach/canvassing, front desk administrative support, photography, and workshop/program facilitation.
