"GRID gave me the opportunity to learn more about solar, to get hands-on experience and learn ways to get natural resources and parlay them into energy that we can use for the future. It’s a wonderful opportunity and I’m grateful that GRID allows us to come here and get our hands dirty." - Volunteer Sidney Maduforo

Volunteering with GRID Alternatives is a great way to get hands-on with solar technology, build your solar resume, engage your corporate or organizational team, give back to the community, and contribute to cleaner air for everyone. No experience is required. Whether you are a college student looking for a meaningful way to spend your spring break, a solar PV student looking for real world experience, a corporate employee volunteer or a solar enthusiast, our licensed installers will teach you everything you need to know. Our Team Leader Program provides additional training and leadership opportunities for experienced volunteers.
