The RACC plans to hire several volunteers and one paid staff person to greet guests and give information to travelers at the Visitor Center, located at 150 Racecourse Road (near the intersection of Highways 550 and 62). No experience is necessary. Training will be provided, plus thank you gifts to volunteers.
“Volunteering at the Visitor Center is a great way to share your love of our area. It’s fun to meet people and learn about what they are interested in and where they come from. It feels good to contribute my time to our community in this way, and honestly, I’m able to catch up on reading, work and writing letters in between visitors,” explained Tanya Ishikawa, who has volunteered for three summers at the center.
Please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/PFevY4PqxLiB7Xc37. We will send more information about scheduling and applications by mid-May. If you have questions, please contact Executive Director Ashley Perkins at .
