Volunteer with BU

Lead a Community

We are always looking for Community Leaders! If you are passionate about nature and kids, we would love for you to join us. We launch groups twice a year.

Social Media

If you love promoting and posting on social media, we would love your help. We are looking for a team to market BU and do regular posts, graphics, and content.

Blogs & Newsletters

Do you love to write and are you passionate about nature, homeschooling, and learning outdoors? We have a couple ways you can get involved! 
  • Guest Blogger: You decide on the topic and write once or as often as you'd like.
  • Newsletter: What is happening at BU and what people need to know.

Grant Writing

Did you know the average family spends $200 a year to be a part of our communities? We can keep this cost low by receiving grants to help offset our budget.

The Barefoot University grant committee is always accepting volunteers. If you have grant writing experience, can research potential grant funding sources, or would like to volunteer, sponsor, or help in any other capacity, please contact us!


Use the beautiful outdoors to host a Party in the Park!

Have a fundraiser for Barefoot University. Invite grandparents, friends, and families to come enjoy nature and donate to a good cause! BU may provide promotional materials and speak upon request.

General Admin Work

We always have projects and tasks that we could use help completing. This position could be ongoing or an “as needed” volunteer when we need an extra hand.  

Scholarship Committee

If you would be interested in serving as a short-term or one-time committee member, this might be perfect for you. Help raise awareness and make decisions about scholarship funds and donations.  


We always need things you might be getting rid of like tarps, rope, twine, come-along straps, firewood, etc. If you have items you'd like to donate to us, please contact us!

Or, if you prefer, you can make a financial donation anytime.
