Become a Shop Steward


Attention all former and current Rebuilding Center Shop Volunteers! We're writing specifically to you to let you know about a neat opportunity coming down the pike.

In mid-September we will officially be rolling out "Open Shop" to the public! But, in order to do this, we'll need dedicated and knowledgeable individuals to take part as Volunteer Shop Stewards. During Open Shop, Shop Stewards will monitor tools and machines, ensure safety practices are being met, and much more!

In order to be a Volunteer Shop Steward we require at least (1) shift doing Material Prep in the shop, and (1) TA shift in one of our Education classes. Already done both? Great, keep an eye out for Shop Steward shifts available in a month!

Still need to complete a TA shift to level up to Shop Steward? No problem! If you've already spent at least one shift volunteering in the Education shop, you're immediately eligible to become a Teaching Assistant (TA) in one of our classes. We've just opened up more TA shifts for most of our classes from now through mid-September, but they're filling up fast! If you're interested, keep an eye out for new class listings with corresponding TA shifts on your online volunteer scheduler.

As a refresher on how to get over to our website and sign yourself up for a TA slot, simply log in, click the "My Schedule" tab, and sign up where you see availability!

After months of prep, beta-testing, shop updating, tool refining, and so on, we're super excited to get to offer Open Shop, and just so you know, as a Shop Steward for Open Shop, you'd not only be getting to share your carpentry knowledge with others, but would have unique opportunities to refine and grow in them as well!

Please reach out to our education team at if you have any questions. We're happy to help!
