We welcome you to join our village of volunteers! As a nonprofit store, volunteers are crucial to our success, helping us to keep our overhead costs lower, which allows us to purchase more from artisans. Apply now to join our fun-filled volunteer positions—greeting and interacting with customers, unpacking and checking orders, assisting with displays and operating the cash register. We welcome volunteers any time of the year.
Let us know you’re interested by filling out an application at our store. You can also contact our store for more information.
Meet Our Volunteers
Mary has been volunteering here at Ten Thousand Villages since 2009 and is a valued member of the team. She is an artist and craftsperson, a collector of ethnic and American crafts, and takes pride in the fact that by volunteering she is helping artisans in the developing world who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed.
“It’s great to have a smart, talented, and dynamic person like Mary working with us in our Brookline store,” says store manager Glenn Whidden. “She knows that by volunteering she helps us keep our overhead costs lower, which allows us to purchase more from the artisans we work with. We all love working with her and wonder how we got along before she started.”
