Study Center Volunteer Opportunities

At FOCUS, we see that volunteers play an integral role in almost every part of our programs. Every summer hundreds of students and leaders come to Martha’s Vineyard to have a great experience. This would not be possible without an incredible group of volunteers supporting our programs. From the kitchen to helping around the grounds, we invite our friends, family, and alumni to work alongside of us.

Kitchen Volunteers

Over the summer we would love to have you and your friends come and help us in the kitchen. You will have a chance to prepare delicious and healthy meals and to be part of a community devoted to making sure students have a terrific time here on the Vineyard. You will be the secret ingredient in making our programs as effective as they can be!

If you are interested in working with us over the summer, please follow these steps:

  1. Learn more about volunteering in the kitchen by reading through our FAQs page.
  2. Review the Volunteer Calendar to see which weeks we have kitchen volunteer needs.
  3. Request your dates to be a kitchen volunteer. 

**Please do not make any travel arrangements until you have received an acceptance email confirming your dates.**

Feel like you are more skilled in lawn care of various maintenance jobs? Our facilities crew would love to have extra hands to do everything from mowing the lawn to fixing fences or setting up a slip 'n slide. Please indicate "facilities" on your volunteer application and follow the steps outlined above. Please note that we have a limited number of spots for facilities volunteers.

Please contact mvprograms@infocus.org with any additional questions about volunteering.
