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 folks who help ferry (get it?) gear to and from the team’s basecamp. This volunteer activity requires carrying heavy loads of gear on your back on potentially rocky, slippery, or steep terrain. If you are interested in being directly involved with an expedition (such as gear fairy-ing), we highly recommend being local to the expedition you wish to volunteer for, as we are not able to reimburse for volunteer travel expenses.

When signing up to learn more about our volunteer opportunities, be sure to check the box for each expedition or location you are interested in receiving opportunities from!
