You will also learn about the Co-op and work alongside fellow Co-op owners. Your involvement enhances the spirit of community that is so important to GreenStar’s mission and values.

How to Get Started

Attend an upcoming one hour Owner Volunteer Program Orientation, which is required in order to volunteer in any capacity. Orientations are held at each store location, and you can attend any orientation, regardless of where you’d like to volunteer.

The schedule of upcoming Owner Volunteer Orientations can be found on our events calendar page.

Volunteer shift sign-up happens at the Orientation, but you may view the variety of Owner Volunteer opportunities posted at the Member Centers in each store location. Only the West End Member Center displays the in-store volunteer opportunities for all three stores.
