Become a Volunteer

"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

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—our licensed and experienced staff will teach you all you need to know! Our Team Leader Program provides additional training and teaching opportunities for experienced volunteers.

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!
