What: Learn about materials and contribute to K-12 STEM education.

Trash For Teaching (T4T) is a non-profit organization and material resource center that promotes recycling, sustainability and creativity, in our warehouse and in schools all over LA.

Volunteer Project: Help add new donations to the T4T warehouse and interact with shoppers.
Volunteer Role & Responsibilities: L.A. Works volunteers do various tasks around the T4T warehouse, according to their inclination and what we have going on!  We are constantly receiving interesting materials discarded by manufacturers and wholesalers, and you will often find yourself sorting and organizing colorful items that you have never imagined existed.  Other activities include folding fabric, loading and unloading the T4T truck in preparation for events, assisting customers who come to shop for materials in the warehouse, and using power tools to erect or tear down whatever structures we need at the moment.
  • Any volunteer between the ages of 14 and 17 MUST bring a signed copy of the Volunteer Agreement for Minors by a parent or guardian.
  • A creative spirit! 
Accessibility: L.A. Works firmly believes that we strengthen the social fabric of our community by involving all in service. If you feel you need accommodations to participate in this project please email us at info@laworks.com.
