Weekend Warrior Volunteer Opportunities

random 084.JPG
Young Life's Washington Family Ranch is built on the foundation of volunteer labor.  Tens of thousands of volunteer hours have brought this property to where it is today, everything from new construction to routine tasks and maintenance.  Below you will find our current needs for volunteer help, ways for you to come and partner with our staff as we continue to make Washington Family Ranch a place where kids experience “the best week of their lives!”
Read on for more details, or skip down to the bottom for a list of current projects.

How many people?

All projects will list the crew size we are hoping for.  It would be ideal if you are able to round up the entire crew required to complete a project, but we know that may not be possible.  Contact us as soon as possible so we can work to schedule you with another crew that may be required for larger projects.

Tools & Skills

If specific tools, equipment or skills are required for a project, that will be noted.


Current Projects


We have several metal projects to be done, including fabrication and repair. Welding equipment is available on-site.

Mini-Excavator Operator

We could use a person to operate a mini-excavator to pull brush along the roadside.  This project could be done by one guy in one week or several weekends.


We are in the midst of remodeling some of our buildings.  We could use people with carpentry experience to help speed up the process.

Phone and Network Projects

There are several electronics and networking projects going on right now, including:
  • Exterior Phone pedestal & underground cabling
  • Interior phone & Ethernet wiring
  • Fiber work / splicing / termination


Electricians and HVAC 

Any licensed electricians or HVAC who have some hours to serve here at the Ranch please contact us at 541-489-3100 and we will find a project to fit your schedule and talents. 

Deep Cleaning 

Folks who love to clean. We need groups of any size who are willing to work with our housekeeping department to really get in the corners and clean those places that general cleaning misses. Great for a ladies or youth group that is looking for a weekend service project.

Winter is when we really give our buildings a good cleaning.  We need groups, families, churches with as few as 2 or 3 up to 20 to help our housekeeping staff, either during the week or on weekends.


Exterior Window Cleaning

We'll have all the cleaning materials, ladders and lifts if necessary. We need some folks who love to make windows sparkle, so our guests can enjoy the beauty outside their window. You'll be working with housekeeping, just let us know what weekend works for you. 

Carpet Cleaning

Off season we like to clean carpets in our buildings. We have professional carpet cleaning equipment and will be happy to show you how to run it. This is a great project for a couple folks who want to serve for a weekend.
