Ascendtials requires the support of volunteers to assist with our vital programming. We have a variety of opportunities to gain experience to preserve and protect our environment and each other so that we may prosper. Volunteers will support our Environmental programs which are designed to reconnect us with all that is around us. This helps us to develop and understand our role in nature so that it thrives in a sustainable way. Reconnect with us for these experiences and get the much-needed air for your own vitality. We also give opportunities for those in the community to share knowledge in our Healing sessions. If you are a musician and/or artist, we also need you to help us create an environment to heal during participating in our services. We look forward to seeing you! Please choose an area where you’d like to make an impact and complete our volunteer form. Should you have questions, please reach out at to speak to someone on our team.
