Whether you want to join us for a clean up, an educational activity, or simply want to go an an educational hike, our team of volunteers at the Tangency Foundation is here to help make that a reality. We are always looking for people to join us in our wide-range of activities, including community demonstrations, academic presentations, scenic hikes, environmental clean ups, and even arts and crafts! We offer community service hours and have internship positions available.
We encourage people from all over to contact us about volunteer opportunities - particularly with the mindset to set up their own campaigns wherever they are, because there are environmental issues all over the planet, and we work best on the ones we're connected to. If you have noticed issues of concern in your area, The Tangency Foundation can help you organize volunteers, campaigns, media, and more to bring about change!
If you would like to learn more about what we do, feel free to leave us a message and we can get back to you as soon as possible!
