Mount Hermon volunteers serve directly with the staff to improve the facilities, provide service to our guests and contribute unique combinations of experience, maturity and knowledge to a broad range of tasks and projects. In 2015, volunteers donated over 25,000 hours of their time and service to the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ at Mount Hermon. We encourage you to think and pray about joining.

Our Kidder Creek location is looking for a retired person or couple to live on-site and volunteer in the areas of maintenance, lawn care, cooking or office work. An RV space is available. Kidder Creek is located in the mountains of Northern California. You would be working in a fun environment, have opportunities to witness life changing moments and develop long term relationships with young people who need Godly models. For information on this volunteer opportunity please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 530-598-9849.
We’re seeking a volunteer who would help us organize and sell items on eBay and Craigslist. Occasionally Mount Hermon has items it needs to sell or discard. We are looking for a volunteer who can evaluate items, do price comparisons, write item descriptions, take pictures, and post the items on Craig's List and eBay. Follow-up with potential buyers and help us complete the transaction with the seller.
We are in need of on-call volunteers to support our Housekeeping Department. Work includes: cleaning rooms, vacuuming, dusting, changing and laundering sheets, cleaning bathrooms,and other general housekeeping duties. These volunteers are mostly needed on Saturdays during summer time and during big “turnovers” between events. No experience necessary, training will be provided. Some personal knowledge of general housekeeping methods is helpful. If you're looking for a fun and active job, this is it!
Volunteers are needed to sew curtains for our lodges and cabins. We are forming volunteer groups to serve once a month. This is a fun and easy activity. All materials will be provided by Mount Hermon. Experience not needed. If you love sewing or would like to learn please join our corps of volunteers.
The maintenance department is looking for a highly skilled electrician or two to assist on a regular basis. Usually, will be working independently on site. If you have the skills and have been looking for a way to give back to Mount Hermon, this is a great opportunity!
Together with like-minded professionals, individuals volunteer their skills and expertise to the functioning of Mount Hermon. To name just a few, this includes: architects, civil engineers, master carpenters, electricians, plumbers, contractors, nurses, doctors, and lawyers.
We host many short term groups from various churches, schools, and other organizations. These groups come from as far away as Manitoba, Canada to as close as Scotts Valley, CA. They primarily focus on projects from the "to do" list of the buildings and grounds department, and range from trail work and landscaping to facilities maintenance and construction.
Local teams are comprised of people who live close enough to join us on a regular basis. They take responsibility for certain tasks ranging from administrative work to hostessing and bulk mailings. Each team has a leader responsible for organizing work schedules and assigning tasks.
