Become a Volunteer

Sign up today to volunteer with one of GRID Alternatives' regional offices serving California, Colorado, New York Tri-State and the Mid-Atlantic region. No experience or special tools needed!

Becoming a volunteer is as easy as filling out our on-line volunteer application. Volunteers must be 18 or older, but no experience or special tools are required. Not comfortable on the roof? Come out and be part of the ground crew. Our licensed and experienced staff will teach you all you need to know! 

Start the volunteer application now!

Once you've signed up, you can log on to our volunteer portal to sign up for a mandatory volunteer orientation, trainings, and volunteer opportunities in your selected region(s). You will receive confirmation for your orientation, training, or installation date after you sign up. We are fortunate to have more volunteers than we can accommodate on projects in some areas, so you may be waitlisted more than once. If you get waitlisted, our database tracks this so we can give you priority on future projects. Thanks for your patience!
