Volunteer Opportunities

Coho/US is always looking for passionate and talented folks to help us grow the cohousing movement, from spreading the word and promoting events, writing for our blog and newsletter, conference planning, and tackling administrative responsibilities. We welcome hearing from you, for these or other volunteer jobs you have in mind.
