Engage. Support. Volunteer.
Because the spirit of North House holds fond memories and hopeful
dreams for so many, this little school on the harbor has grown, and
continues to grow as an ever widening community.
With this growth comes a need for more helping
hands to keep it all moving along smoothly. Several yearly special
events, and a variety of campus maintenance, improvements and repair
projects are always in need. We invite you
to join our group of volunteers.
By lending a helping hand, we welcome you and
provide an opportunity to
meet a growing community of North House friends - instructors,
students, neighbors, and supporters. Volunteer to distribute
catalogs, host programs during special events, or assist with mailings.
To become a North House
volunteer, please contact Matt Nesheim, Volunteer and Classroom
Coordinator - Call 888 387-9762 or 218 387-9762.
TO STAY UP TO
DATE sign up for our monthly volunteer e-newsletter.
