Outside Care & Nanny Volunteers
Volunteers who are 18 years or older will have the chance to meet other volunteers, work alongside our staff, and all of our 130+ goats. Volunteering at Surfing Goat Dairy will challenge you to learn new skills, help us with our daily chores, give proper nutritional care to our kids, and give love and affection to our goats! After attending a New Volunteer Orientation, we ask for volunteers to come at least once a week and commit two to six months of their time. You will receive the training needed to be able to perform the tasks independently. Of course, you'll be working closely with our dairy staff who will be able to assist, when needed.
