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’!
