At Tykes2Teens, we LOVE our Volunteers!

At all of our sales we enlist the help of our loyal consignors and shoppers at the sale site to work with us as volunteers. In return, Tykes2Teens volunteers receive special incentives such as: early pre-sale shopping or the return of the consignor fee. Volunteering is open to anyone! So the question is: How would you like to earn perks for giving us as little as 2-hours of your time?

Volunteer F.A.Q.

Q: Do I have to be a consignor to volunteer with Tykes2Teens?
A: Absolutely not! We welcome anyone age 18 or older to volunteer with us.

Q: Is there a registration fee to join as a volunteer?
A: No, volunteer registration is FREE and takes just a few minutes of your time.

Q: I am registered as a volunteer and have decided to also consign, what do I need to do?
A: Please send us an email and we will convert your registration to a seller so that you can pay your registration fee and begin tagging.

Q: Can I bring my child with me when I volunteer?
A: Unfortunately no, we ask that you do not bring young children along with you to volunteer.

Q: What should I wear when I volunteer?
A: We suggest that all volunteers wear comfortable clothing and shoes. If necessary, we will provide volunteers with aprons to wear during their shift.

Q: What if I want to help, but don’t see a shift that fits my schedule?
A: No worries! We are happy to review our schedules for additional shift availability and simply ask that you send us a short email with the day and time you wish to help.

Q: If I signed up to help and find that a conflict has come up, what can I do?
A: If the volunteer schedule is still open, please log back in and remove yourself from the shift. If the schedule is closed or you are having difficulty removing yourself, please email us and let us know so we can take care of it for you. If your conflict arises last minute, please send a text message to the phone number provided in your sale week email so that we know you can’t make it.

Q: Why can’t I bring a guest along with me to shop in the pre-sale?
A: Pre-sale shopping is a special incentive we offer to our volunteers who assist us for a minimum of 2-hours. We welcome additional volunteers and recommend that if you have a friend who would also like to shop early that you encourage them to sign up to volunteer too!

Q: Can my husband help out in my place?
A: YES! Some extra muscle goes a long way in helping set up and tear down the sales floor. Feel free to sign him up under his own name or under your name and then send him in your place. An email alerting us to who is coming would be extremely helpful in our planning.

Q: Can I sign up to work with my friend/mother?
A: Yes, we have many moms and mother/daughter teams that work together and then shop together!
