Volunteers Needed

Due to Covid-19 concerns, we are in need of volunteers to work as Cashiers and Docents.  Train knowledge is a plus, but not required you will be trained.  This is an unpaid position, but you can come in at your convenience, volunteer as much as you want or 1 to 2 days a month.

If  you are interested please send questions or comments to FOTDGiftShop@gmail.com, and it will get to the appropriate person. Thank you in advance for responding. Get out and meet  some other awesome volunteers, and meet people from all over the world.

      We celebrate our absolutely wonderful volunteers once a year. The depot is the jewel of Tehachapi, but our awesome volunteers makes it one of the best places to visit in Tehachapi. They are all warm and welcoming to our visitors from any part of the the world.  Thank you so much to all of you. The Friends of the Tehachapi Depot (FOTD), who manages the Depot, appreciates all of you. 

     The photos are from the April 23, 2019 celebration, of course we will have one ASAP to honor our volunteers, especially after the issues with Covid-19.
