How do I apply to volunteer? 

You can apply online using the form below, or call us directly at (831) 626-8480.



We welcome volunteers of all ages, including high school and college students.      

Yes! Students who volunteer can get school credit and are responsible to complete the required school paperwork. YBR staff will sign off on students’ volunteer hours.

Once you apply, the YBR Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to set up an orientation.  After the orientation is completed, you can then sign the Volunteer Acceptance form, decide on which positions at the shop appeal to you, and set up your volunteer schedule.

Of course! We encourage our volunteers to rotate jobs because it strengthens our ability to serve our customers and because it makes the volunteer experience more interesting for you.

We ask new volunteers to accept a three-month commitment with Yellow Brick Road. This involves working two 3-hour shifts each month. Volunteers choose their shift times: either 10am-1pm or 1pm-4pm. We have found that most new volunteers are happy to continue this schedule, and many ask for additional shifts!

Volunteers work with YBR staff members and other volunteers.  Our staff always tries to match the needs of Yellow Brick Road Benefit Shop with a volunteer’s talents and interests. 

Yellow Brick Road welcomes volunteers of all ages to be a part of our mission to serve the community. By volunteering, you can gain valuable experience, forge new friendships, and contribute to a meaningful cause. Whether you’re a high school or college student seeking to earn school credit or someone with a passion for making a difference, we have a place for you. Apply online or give us a call to start your volunteering journey with Yellow Brick Road. We look forward to having you on our team!
