Volunteers Needed at Ridgway Visitor Center in Summer 2022

The Ridgway Area Chamber of Commerce (RACC) is preparing to open the Visitor Center for the 2022 summer and autumn seasons. An enthusiastic group of volunteers is needed to staff the center from May 27 on Memorial Day weekend through early October.

Teachers, high school and college students, retirees, and even part-time locals are encouraged to sign up. The minimum requirement is three shifts per month – more hours are available if interested.

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: We will send more information about scheduling and applications by mid-May. If you have questions, please contact Executive Director Ashley Perkins at .
