Volunteer

Volunteer

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.

VOLUNTEER ORIENTATIONS:

Orientations for the last of half of 2015 have been cancelled while we set up a new venue and more comprehensive content.  In 2016 we will be holding orientations twice a year.  It's not necessary for you to attend an orientation to volunteer with us, but the orientations give you more background information and let you meet our staff.  If you'd like to volunteer, please contact Mary Hanson (mhanson@tuleyome.org) and she'll send you the packet of paperwork we need you to sign.  Thank you for your interest!

 

Volunteer Opportunities in 2015:  NOTE:  Dates are subject to change.  

Details for all of the outings and events can be found at our Meet Up Site:  http://www.meetup.com/Tuleyome-Home-Place-Adventures/

The Benefits of Volunteering:

Volunteering with Tuleyome provides you with the opportunity to:

  • Learn new skills
  • Gain more experience
  • Go to places you may have never been before
  • Learn more about your environment
  • Meet new people and form new friendships
  • Expand your personal “networking” system
  • Become more active in your community
  • Practice being a role model for kids and teens
  • Improve your résumé
  • Get a little exercise
  • Reconnect with Nature
  • Participate in a national campaign with historical significance, and… 
           ...become a part of something much larger than yourself

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.

If you’d like to make a long-term volunteer commitment, check out these opportunities:

 

  • Tabling Assistant:  We always need volunteers to assist us with tabling in the local communities.  Tabling is a low-impact, fun way to rack up some volunteer hours while also getting to meet a lot of new people, and learn a lot more about Tuleyome's campaigns and programs.  You can sign up for several dates or just one, whichever works best with your schedule.  At tabling events you're usually sitting down, talking to people who come up to the table, handing out brochures, and getting signatures on postcards of support.  For more information contact: rmiyashiro@tuleyome.org. 
  • Campaign Assistant: The Campaign Assistant will work under the direct supervision of the Campaign Coordinator, and is an important part of the Tuleyome/Berryessa Snow Mountain NCA team. Primary responsibilities include assisting on the proposed Berryessa Snow Mountain National campaign, coordinating day-to-day activities related to the campaign, and supporting other development activities to include, but not limited to, annual grant tracking, prospect research, and database management. For more information contact rmiyashiro@tuleyome.org

  • Media Assistant: The Media Project Assistant will assist the Media Coordinator with daily assistance with the Tuleyome website, postings to social media sites, newspaper clipping organization, scanning, data entry, general research and other duties assigned.  Keeping the website and social media sites updated with correct and timely information, and scanning and organizing past media materials are major components of this job. For more information contact corr@tuleyome.org

  • Office Assistant: The Office Assistant works directly with the Executive Assistant to ensure that the daily needs and duties of the office are completed in a timely and efficient manner.  In the intern position, you will be taught organizational skills, how to use the Giftworks donors program, and general office skills (such as filing and organizing files, ordering supplies, disbursing the mail, etc.)  You will also assist with the development and implementation of our new volunteer program. For more information contact mhanson@tuleyome.org

  • Habitat Restoration and Invasive Species Eradication: Tuleyome restores habitat throughout the region, including the planting of native plants such as “bunch grass” and oak tree saplings in specified areas.  Although there are often things to do at all fitness levels, habitat restoration is generally listed as a “heavy duty” job because it takes place exclusively outdoors, sometimes in open areas with little shade and a high degree of sunlight.  Other areas are accessible only by kayak or boat.  You will need your own reliable transportation and the ability to hike over sometimes rugged terrain carrying materials, plants and tools. ((This may also be a “medium-duty job depending on where it is and what's needed.))  For more information contact Carol Kunze at carol@tuleyome.org or Eric Barnett at bambam@tuleyome.org.

  • Trail Building and Maintenance: Some trail building and maintenance work is exceedingly time consuming and requires a lot of strength and stamina.  Sometimes, you’re working in in very rugged terrain; other times you may be asked to carry lumber into remote locations to repair footings on trails.  “Heavy-Duty” jobs are usually held outdoors in remote areas. You will need your own reliable transportation and the ability to hike over very rugged terrain for long periods of time. ((This may also be a “medium-duty job depending on where it is and what's needed.)) For more information contact Carol Kunze at carol@tuleyome.org or Eric Barnett at bambam@tuleyome.org.

If you would like a copy of our volunteer packet, or want to sign up for the next orientation, please contact Mary Hanson at mhanson@tuleyome.org.
