The Truckee Roundhouse is a team of volunteers creating a high-quality, inclusive, and fun space to teach, learn, and practice skills in wood, metal, textile, ceramic, electronics, and more!

Core Volunteers are the Roundhouse’s front line greeters: the first impression for visitors, potential donors, new students, and prospective members and are there to help out our existing membership.

No one type of skill predominates but an interest in learning new tools is a plus. Truckee Roundhouse is committed to inclusivity and encourage all who are interested to apply.
