Volunteers make things work
You can make a difference in the lives of birds at Free Flight. People help birds while birds help people.
The volunteer opportunities are flexible and work with your availability. A minimum twice monthly 2-hour shift is required, except for special events and maintenance volunteers.
Ways to get involved:
- Adults ages 18+ Avian Care and Socialization:
Duties include cage cleaning, yard cleanup, feeding the birds, and helping visitors socialize with the birds.
- Sanctuary Maintenance:
Help with repairs, yard work and miscellaneous tasks.
- Special Events:
Volunteers help with marketing and setting up fundraising events, summer programs and community engagement events as well as working the events.
- High School and College Internships:
Internships are typically 8-16 hours a week for a 2-6 month period to meet the desired outcome. Internships focus on 3 areas: animal husbandry in a sanctuary setting, public interaction and education.
- Community Agency Partnerships Opportunities:
Free Flight works with local agencies that give individuals opportunities to volunteer in order to gain job skills.
- Job Skills Training Opportunities for Individuals with Disabilities:
Free Flight works with local agencies that give individuals with disabilities opportunities to acquire job skills.
