You do not need a computer background to contribute to Free Geek as a volunteer. We encourage people from all backgrounds to get involved. Our facility is mostly accessible, and we welcome people with different abilities. Whether you want to learn, perform community service, get school credit, earn a computer or support the cause(s), we have room for you!
Take a 30-40 minute volunteer orientation tour 11am or 4pm Tuesday-Saturday to learn about our many volunteer opportunities and to sign up. Find out more about how to get started here!
We have two main programs for volunteers. The Adoption Program is for people who want to volunteer for 24 hours and receive a free desktop computer. Volunteers in the Build Program learn how to build their own computer to take home.
If you would like to make a larger commitment to Free Geek, gain more skills, or guarantee a regular schedule our Internships may interest you. Free Geek offers unpaid internships that come with valuable job skills training, resume assistance, letters of reference and feedback on performance. These are highly appreciated and competitive positions.
It is, unfortunately, very difficult for us to accommodate groups of volunteers. If you would like to pursue this, though, please give us a call so we can see if there’s a way to make it work.
Free Geek could not exist without its fabulous volunteers. Thank you for donating your time to support the Free Geek mission. We’re happy to have you as one of our over 500 active volunteers!
