Interested in volunteering?

We rely on our volunteers for most of what we do - helping gather gear for our expeditions, sorting through photos, fundraising, working on our website, and more! If you think you have a skill that would be useful to us, please sign up for our volunteer listserv below or email

One of the most popular ways to volunteer is to be a  "Gear Fairy" for one of our expeditions!
These are the women who ferry (get it?) team gear to and from the campsite, ahead of the girls. This volunteer activity requires carrying heavy loads of gear on your back on potentially rocky, slippery, or steep terrain. Our gear fairies typically live close to Seattle, Fairbanks, and Denver - the cities closest to our expedition sites.
