How to Engage & Make Ace Possible
These opportunities repeat on a monthly basis. Each month we need volunteers.
Sign up once or on a regular basis.
Oakland First Friday Booth Staff
The first Friday of the month in shifts start at 5pm ending at 8:30/9ish. Scripts to make it easy to talk to folks. Popular activities and a good time. Tacos are of course included. See #general on Slack to get the sign-up link.
Air Quality Maintenance (AQM)
This is usually mid-month, around the 17th to the 21st. This is a group activity and training is available. This job takes 4 hours and a 2-hour commitment is the smallest meaningful engagement block. See #workshop on Slack to get the sign-up link.
Sewcial Night Co-Hosting
This event is 6:30 to 9:30 PM on the third Friday of the month folks gather to work on various sewing projects or textiles-based activities. Help co-hosting this purely social occasion and potluck makes it welcoming and fun for everyone. Interest in textiles would be good but no special skills are needed outside of hosting. See #textiles on Slack to get the sign-up link.
Friday Night Art!
This event is 6:30 to 9:30 PM on the last Friday of the month. The format of the event is like Paint n’ Sip but with different themed activities. This event is a potluck and sliding scale. Co-hosting is a great way to help. No formal art experience is needed. See #art on Slack to get the sign-up link.
One Time Opportunities
These opportunities general happen one time but can be repeated.
Take out the trash and recycle
Sometimes it is just the little things that count! On your way out you can take any trash or recycle to the dumpsters in the loading dock. Access to the loading dock is through the double doors or the door to the side of the main entry.
Help Prepare Class Materials
We regularly need help preparing class materials. Usually on Fridays and Saturdays. This could involve laser cuttings. cutting down lumber, or stuffing kit envelopes. Please contact @Crafty on Slack for the next opportunity.
