Volunteer Opportunities

Think of it…

…spending time on a mountain top, far away from traffic, noise, phones, schedules, TV, pressure and stress…

Do you enjoy working outdoors on the land, playing, hiking, praying, reflecting, reading, creating, resting, being with children, building relationships, and living in community?

Come for a few days or a week.  Additional benefits and opportunities include organic gardening, immersion in local history and music, oral histories, and the rich labor history of Mingo County.

Because of multiple commitments, it is important for volunteers to schedule visits by contacting the Director before hand. You can email the Director at biglaurel.director@gmail.com.

We would like to thank and recognize a number of organizations that came to Big Laurel this year to volunteer in a work camp, summer camp, or immersion program.
