Tuleyome was founded in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) advocacy-oriented nonprofit conservation organization.  From those first talks between the all-volunteer founders around a kitchen table, the organization has grown to include offices in Yolo and Napa Counties, and our donor-base now encompasses members in over 64% of the counties in the state of California.  Today, volunteers are needed more than ever and are a vital component of our projects and programs.

How to Decide What You’d Like to Do:

Opportunities for Volunteers at Tuleyome are varied.  We have everything from low-impact in-office work to high-impact outdoor work.  So how do you decide what you might like to do?  Well, first, you need to ask yourself some general questions such as:

  • Do you want to work indoors or outdoors… or a little of both?
  • Do you want to make a one-time commitment for a specific event?  Do you want to work “as needed” or on a “continuous” basis?
  • Do you want to do “light-duty”, “medium duty”, or “heavy duty” work? (Keep in mind your fitness level.)
  • Do you want to work week days? Weekends?  As needed?  Overnight?
  • Do you want a lot of responsibility, just a little, or none at all?
  • Do you want to travel or do you want to stay in one place?
  • If travel is your preference, do you have reliable transportation to get yourself to-and-from required locations?
  • Do you want to work with children and teens, or would you rather work with adults?
  • Do you want to contribute something other than your time (such as a specific skill, or a venue, or product)?

By answering these questions, you’ll bring yourself one step closer to what volunteer opportunities interest you the most.  We can send you short lists of the different opportunities broken down by fitness level ("Light-Duty", "Medium-Duty", "Heavy-Duty"). Just make a note of what you're looking for in the form at the bottom of this page.
