As a Spare Parts volunteer, one may find themselves teaching hands-on reuse crafts to kids at an outreach event, making t-shirt yarn for a project, or even a more behind the scenes role doing inventory or sorting out supplies in preparation for an event.

As volunteer volunteer coordinator, I love the mission of Spare Parts and feel fulfilled when I contribute to the mission, advancing reuse education through the arts.” -Laura Kraus, Spare Parts volunteer Volunteer Coordinator
