How to Get Started

Attend an upcoming one hour Member Labor 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 Member Labor Volunteer Orientations can be found on our events calendar page.

Know the date of the orientation you’d like to attend? Register here, email volunteer@greenstar.coop, or sign up in person at the Customer Service Desk at the West End store.

Volunteer shift sign-up happens at the Orientation, but you may view the variety of Member Labor 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.
