Volunteer Application

Please complete the initial application to indicate your interest in volunteering at Erik’s Ranch or Retreat. We will request more in-depth information as we review applications. Please note, MN volunteers must live on-site, and MT volunteers must establish a serve team. If you have any questions regarding volunteer opportunities, please contact us at info@eriksranch.org.

As part of the Live-In Volunteer program at Erik’s Retreat, you have the power to create a future of possibilities for highly independent young adults affected by autism. In exchange for reduced rent in one of our studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom apartments, volunteers fulfill a time commitment of 4 hours per week and a 4-hour weekend shift per month. Our apartments are unfurnished with a stove/oven, refrigerator, central heat/air conditioning, all utilities included, free wifi, and pets are allowed with a nonrefundable deposit. Volunteer interaction with our members includes leading group social outings for our members, assisting our members with daily living skills, and assisting our staff of life plan coaches with various tasks.
