Volunteer in the Forest

DNDA Volunteer Statement:

The volunteers who work to support our mission, values, history and commitment to social justice are the strength of the Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association (DNDA). We seek to continuously provide a supportive, friendly and enriching environment to welcome and expand every volunteer’s range of talents. We believe that volunteers should come ready to engage in new experiences to help build and sustain a dynamic Delridge.

Upcoming Volunteer Events

What to Bring

Working out in the elements requires the right apparel. Long pants and closed-toed shoes are required, even in the summer. Bring a full water bottle. We will have water available for refills. Tools, gloves, and training will be provided. We also provide granola bars, but please feel free to bring a lunch as well. All volunteers under 18 are required to bring a Youth Waiver Form before participating in their first work party.
