Volunteer With Us! 

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
— Dr. Seuss

We heart St. Johns! We also heart the incredible community members who share their time and talents to make St. Johns a better place to live and work. Join us as we work to strengthen St. Johns (or, fight crime like super heroes). There are a number of ways that people can volunteer: 

work groups

Work groups meet regularly throughout the year and collaborate to support our four key areas of work.

Farmers Market Advisory Group 

This team helps develop and think through various strategies for the Farmers Market, such as marketing and outreach tactics, volunteer recruitment efforts, and building a strong market. We are always looking for volunteers who have farmers market experience to join this team! 
Meets: 3rd Tuesday monthly, 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at the Center for Opportunity office. 


The Business Resource Connection Team works to support our local businesses and strengthen our local economy through a variety of ongoing projects and events. 
Meets: 2nd Wednesday monthly, 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. at the Center for Opportunity office.

placemaking partnerships

This team works to coordinate and promote monthly events in the St. Johns Plaza that focus on improving cleanliness, safety, and community engagement.
Meets: 1st Wednesday monthly, 7:15 p.m. - 8:15 p.m. at the Center for Opportunity office.


Action teams are project-based volunteer groups that work together to achieve a specific goal. Our action teams are highly collaborative and give everyone a chance to think creatively, problem solve and identify action items together. Each team varies in duration. 

Art Constitutional Action Team

This team plans and coordinates our two Art Constitutional events that take place during the summer months. 
Meets: This team meets regularly starting in February and ends in May. 


Don't have time to volunteer regularly? We also have some great one off volunteer opportunities! 

Center for Opportunity events

Have just a couple of hours to volunteer throughout the year? There seems to always be some sort of event going on where we could use extra sets of hands to help set-up, tear-down, or help us run an event. If this is your type of volunteering, send us an email at info@stjohnsopportunity.org and we can make sure to let you know when these opportunities arise! 


The Farmers Market runs from May 20th through October 28th in 2017. We need volunteers each Saturday to help with set-up (7-9am), break down (2-3pm) and other various tasks. If you're interested in helping, sign up using this form.
