Volunteer Opportunities

Many people in our community have volunteered time and talent to bring MIXXER to life. There is still plenty of opportunities for you to play a role in creating your community makerspace.

We’ll be opening up the shop most Saturdays for volunteers to come help make MIXXER look great. We’ll leave the difficult stuff to the professionals, but you can help with painting, light construction, and clean-up. Check out our calendar for the next work day.

Email us at [email protected] if you have questions about volunteering.
