Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do at Community First! Village. We would love for your group of 5 or more to come out and serve alongside us in the most unique neighborhood in all of Austin!

All Group Serve Events must be coordinated directly through MLF Staff. Tell us more about your group by filling out the form on the right, and someone from our Volunteer Team will follow up with you about your group’s reservation!

We generally host groups of 5+ volunteers on Tuesdays – Saturdays from 9am – 12pm October through April and from 8am to 11am May through September.

A typical serve day could entail working in our gardens, dry landscaping yards for micro-homes, laying pathways, tending our chicken coops, or other projects that beautify the property, but there are occasionally other projects available.
