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.  If you like hands-on work check out our felting factory, exhibit building opportunities, and urban edible garden. Prefer working with lots of people? We need docents for our Open-House tours, social media filming, and gift shop… Are you a geek?  We LOVE geeks!  We are accepting online and international applications for Hum Sum Mods, testers, proofreaders and more…

  • Volunteers are paid in smiles and chocolate!
  • Interns are for high school and college-aged students. Ask us about our $150 stipend program for a commitment of 10 check-in days (40 hours) minimum over 3 months.
  • If you are available for an even greater time commitment, see our Apprenticeships page.

All who are interested, please fill out the form below and / or shoot us an email at team@matteroftrust.org to find out more. Thank you! We look forward to hearing from you and working together!
