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.
We are now accepting volunteer applications. If you are interested in volunteering, please stop by the Red Bank store at 69 Broad Street to introduce yourself and to fill out an application.
I enjoy volunteering at Ten Thousand Villages because I strongly support the mission of the organization. Sharing the idea that there are other ways to shop in order to end poverty and enable people to work in safe environments and earn a fair wage is important and plays a strong role in improving communities. Volunteering here allows me to learn more about fair trade, strengthens my respect for other cultures, and gives me the chance to get some work experience. I recently graduated with a BA in English and a minor in Russion from Montclair State University.
I am currently attending Arcadia University in Glenside, PA; studying English. I live in and grew up in the Red Bank area. Ten Thousand Villages has been a great addition to the community both here and for the artisans with which it partners. I enjoy volunteering here over my summer break because I like to give back to my community - plus it's always neat to see what's new on display.
I am a business major at the University of Delaware who firmly believes in fair trade. I started volunteering while I attended high school- wanting to learn more about what fair trade was. Since I began volunteering at the store, I have written papers, done extensive research, and promoted fair trade in my every day life. Next winter, I will be studying in Costa Rica where I am excited to learn about the production of fair trade coffee. By volunteering at Ten Thousand Villages, not only have my eyes opened, but also I know I am contributing to the global community by helping those in need.
