Volunteer Opportunities

Needing a change of scenery?  Wanting to mobilize your body and do good for others? Looking to cultivate some good karma?

If the answer to these questions is YES, then consider arranging a volunteer stay at The Mountain!

Volunteering at The Mountain is a wonderful, budget friendly way to enjoy this special place! Here is how it works….spend half your day in volunteer service and the other half relaxing, exploring, retreating. Your talents, skills, and interests are matched with a variety of tasks and projects we need done onsite, both the retreat center at the top and the farm at the base. Come for one day or consider  longer term service. We provide housing, meals and magnificent scenery to our volunteers.

We accept volunteers of all kinds – folks in transition, retirees, young adults taking a gap year or needing service hours, adventurers with spunk…

We have an application and screening process to find the best match of volunteers and tasks.

Our Mountain community is powered by the generosity and energy of our supporters, especially our amazing and talented volunteers. Volunteer services save money, fortify staff efforts, and the benefits are substantial, with over 4,000 volunteer hours donated each year!

Working side-by-side with Staff, you can contribute in significant ways to the spirit and benefits of our Mountain by becoming a volunteer.


Applicants must be 18 or older.

All selected volunteers must pass a background check. This background check is necessary as volunteers will be working directly with youth and adult Mountain Retreat and Learning Center guests.



See you on The Mountain!
