Seeking all eco-heroes!


Volunteers use Matter of Trust hair mats on Ocean Beach to help soak up oil from the Cosco Busan oil spill of 2007.

Join our Eco-Efforts!

Come volunteer for Matter of Trust and work on a variety of exciting eco-solutions!
There are  many programs to choose from – from in-person work like felting hair mats and helping with our urban edible garden and chicken coop, to remote work such as research, helpdesk, webpages, etc.

  • Volunteers are paid in smiles and chocolate!
  • Internships are for high school and college-aged students. Ask us about our $250 stipend program.
  • If you are available for a greater time commitment, also see our Apprenticeships page.

If you’re interested, please fill out the form below or shoot us an email at team@matteroftrust.org to find out more. We thank you for your interest and look forward to working with you!
