I absolutely love working with volunteers! This year we had an extraordinary group of volunteers, that worked harmoniously together throughout the weekend. I truly believe that volunteers are the heart and soul of any event. Why is that? Because they are this group of awesome, unique and very excited individuals! They may all be there for different reasons and motivations, but their core values and work ethics are dynamically very similar. We have volunteers, that are 18 and fresh out of high school, embarking on their first post graduation adventure with their friends and volunteers that are in their 70’s that have had careers and love being involved in events. From one volunteer to the next, they are all absolutely amazing! The California Roots 2017 staff was absolutely incredible. They were this perfect symphony, where everyone was like a choreographed dance of people working together.

To the volunteer Staff, Thank you for your hard work and dedication at California Roots! You let your light shine all weekend long. We couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you for joining the California Roots Movement!
