Volunteers are integral in the success of the mission of ELCCT, serving more than 10,000 hours per year. Dedicated community members across central Connecticut work together with staff to perform essential duties such as land and facilities management, improving visitor experiences, advancing large public events, serving on advisory boards, and more. Our staff is committed to guide volunteers to their own success and skill building by providing tools, resources, and training.

We have many opportunities to match a whole variety of interests and talents. There’s something for everyone here at ELCCT!

We welcome adults and youth as young as 14, as well as groups of all sizes.

Please view a full list of our current opportunities, and their descriptions, below along with an application to become a volunteer.
