Get Involved


Volunteer with Damayan


To Get Involved with Damayan, visit our Events calendar for a list of upcoming events. If you see something that you can make it out for, please feel free to come out and help us in the gardens.

Community Outreach


FSU students can sign up at the Center for Leadership and Social Change through the Community Outreach program to volunteer at the Frenchtown Community Garden with Damayan. The Center provides students with transportation to and from the workday. More info on Community Outreach can be found here!

Have a group?


Our weekly workdays do not always have ample work for large groups looking to volunteer. If you have a group of 10 or more people, please email volunteer@damayan.org to see if there is a larger workday, garden build, or more suitable volunteer opportunity coming up that your community group, registered student organization, or any larger group could come out to!

Student Volunteers & Intern Instructions:


1. Read and review the Online Volunteer Handbook (PDF).
2. If you want to get more involved, complete the online application to let us know more about you, your abilities and your interests. We would love to have you join us in achieving our mission.
