Volunteers can choose to participate in a variety of activities based on their schedule and interests. We can always use help with the following:

- Morning/Evening care

- Community walks/farm tours at Awbury

- Offsite events and visits to local schools, libraries, etc.

- Barn maintenance and general "fixing-up"

- Community outreach/publicity

- Running errands (picking up hay, straw, etc)

HOW CAN I VOLUNTEER?

The first step in volunteering for the Philly Goat Project is to attend one of our volunteer training sessions as means of orientation to our program. We offer volunteer training sessions often, and list them on the Events Calendar on our homepage. There is no need to register, simply show up!

Regardless of how many millions of years of experience you have working with goats, we do things a little differently at PGP, and respectfully require that you still attend at least one volunteer training session.

If you have never even seen a goat, have no fear! We will train you and make sure you are comfortable, confident, and capable, every step of the way.

Still have questions?
