LakeShore Service Opportunities

We have positions with different levels of commitment and responsibility that should work for almost anyone! Positions range from year-round board positions, to committee positions that meet a couple times a year or seasonally before an event, to event volunteers that only help at the events! Think you live too far away? We can host meetings via Skype!

Check out the available service opportunities below!
