Update March 2020:
To better serve our community, we have repurposed our equipment and asked for help from volunteers in their homes to help us make Face Shields and Face Masks for local healthcare workers. You can make an impact!
Join the MakerSpace Crew! As a non-profit, we rely on volunteers like you to advance the mission of providing access to advanced tools and training. Let us know if you can help!
We welcome anyone who can assist with the administrative work, teaching & mentoring, fixing and improving the tools/shop, etc. The following are a few regular positions available,
This position is eligible for a free makerspace membership! We need a couple volunteers to come in twice weekly to clean the shop, lobby and restrooms. This is a limited position, so the first ones to volunteer will be eligible for the free memberships!
Be the boss! Looking for someone who wants to spend time assisting makers, giving tours, and assuring a safe environment. You'd be the person in charge!
Are you mechanically minded? Do you understand how tools like laser cutters and cnc machines work? We need a volunteer or three to keep our tools shipshape, do preventative maintenance, and repair them when needed. Without you we don't have tools!
Do you have WordPress experience? You can help make our website more interactive, visually engaging and functional!
Have a way with words? You can be the voice of the makerspace and craft our external communications.
Know your way around a SQL database? Help manage Compass 360 to make it functional for our members and volunteers.
Familiar with any of our tools? Can you help someone learn and troubleshoot 3D printing, woodworking, welding, electronics, etc.? Be a mentor! Come work on your projects and be available to help other makers.
Can you teach small classes in welding, 3D design, CAM software, embroidery, or how to take a project from their design to a finished product? Can you share your skills with a group? We're need instructors to cover the basics and more advanced skills in each part of the design and tool usage process.
Do you love creating and organizing events? Can you create a fun environment that inspires people to get involved? We need you!
Have great ideas for classes? Help create curriculum, schedule classes & workshops, and support the instructors.
Are you a social media wizard? Help us spread the word by creating content for social and traditional media platforms!
Can you be the focal point of the maker community? We need you increase the engagement of our Lacey Makers and learn how to integrate various maker disciplines to foster collaboration. Help the makers take ownership in the Lacey MakerSpace!
Do you like to write? The makerspace is funded primarily by grants and business sponsors, so this role is vital to our success! We'll need a few people working together, this is a team effort.
Have a skill that we didn't cover? We're just getting started, so let me know how you can contribute!
