Bring your passion for community by volunteering with Localworks!

As a nonprofit organization, Localworks relies on volunteers to deliver our mission driven programs.  Our work is organized into two community based committees.  If you are interested in joining a committee, simply reach out to the staff liaison for more information. Committee descriptions are below.

Community Building Events

Community Building Events

Staff Liaison: Carolyn Doran
Monthly meetings as needed

These committees plan and support Localworks’ events, including Criterium and Brewfest, RidgeFest, the Mid Century and Modern Home Tour and Movies on the Ridge.

  • You have relationships with local businesses and/or vendors.
  • You are a creative thinker.
