Volunteer Program

Volunteers are critical to the operation and success of NextStep. We need volunteers to dismantle electronics, receive donations, rebuild computers, staff the ReUse store, and train in the admin and eBay offices.  If you have a particular skill, we can use your help.

Here is a list of some of the things people do for us

  •  Pick up donations
  •  Sort and match donated items
  •  Check and clean parts and systems
  •  Recreate whole systems from donated parts
  •  Help people select a system that matches their needs
  •  Sort software and arrange systems in the ReUse Store
  •  Dismantle electronic hardware to keep e-waste out of the landfills
  •  Participate in computer round-ups in rural communities
  •  Maintain our facilities
  •  Find new donors of equipment and software
