Volunteer with us as an Ambassador to Local First Arizona (ALFA)! We call our volunteers “ALFAs” (Ambassadors of Local First Arizona) because they are dedicated to our mission of creating unique, diverse communities and a more sustainable, resilient economy for everyone!
At Local First Arizona, volunteers are one of the most powerful ways to help us mobilize local communities across the state. The time and passion dedicated from our volunteers aid in supporting our work while creating dynamic ways to empower individuals to ‘go local’!
AMBASSADORS OF LOCAL FIRST ARIZONA
Ambassadors of Local First Arizona (or ALFAs) are passionate about the local movement. Our ALFAs are out at events educating Arizonans about fun ways to join the local movement as well as in our office working alongside staff getting ready for our large festivals and other tasks. In 2017, ALFAs volunteered nearly 1,600 hours at over 80 events around the state!
GREEN TEAM AMBASSADORS
Green Team Ambassadors are dedicated to creating, learning, and growing a more sustainable Arizona. Join the team and volunteer together to divert waste at festivals, community clean ups, and fun hang outs at local businesses who are making a difference, while lessening their footprint.
