Coal River Mountain Watch relies on our dedicated team of volunteers to make our current projects happen. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities, including short-term and long-term, part-time and full-time, and from the Coal River Valley and from afar.
Volunteers have the opportunity to work on environmental justice issues, while learning organizing skills from a variety of projects, tasks, and interactions. Through the first hand experiences of working within community, volunteers can gain valuable skills, meaningful connections, and experience working with a grassroots nonprofit.
On-site volunteers have the opportunity to stay at our volunteer house. The CRMW Volunteer Program is an exciting and engaging live, work, and play experience in Southern West Virginia. Volunteers and interns live together in small house on 178 acres of land the side of Coal River Mountain, located in the small town of Rock Creek. Living with up to 7 other housemates, volunteers also receive a crash course in living together; including shared group meals, shared living and sleeping space, and getting to know each other personally as well as professionally.
