Unique World Gifts is a non-profit Fair Trade retail store that operates year-round. Volunteers are asked to help with operations of the store, including opening and closing procedures, assisting customers, making sales on a computer point-of-sale system, and assisting in other daily tasks. Volunteers may also help with off-site sales events. Volunteers schedules are somewhat flexible, but we request approximately 20-30 hours per week. Volunteers are welcome year-round with the greatest need from September to December. A minimum service time of one month is encouraged for all volunteers, with or without prior retail experience. Lodging: Low-cost housing in a private home is usually available with adequate notice. Volunteers are responsible for their own meals.
