Volunteer Opportunities

Onset beach

Volunteers play a crucial role in the success of the Onset Bay Association.  The OBA is run by volunteers; events are organized and staffed by volunteers, and it’s through the dedication and expertise of volunteers that the OBA is able to support the community and local businesses year after year.

The amount of time you spend at the OBA is up to you.  It can be several hours on the day of an event, or several days helping to organize one; or maybe you would be interested in joining a committee to help manage the organization.  Any time you can spare is greatly appreciated.  Plus it’s a fun way to meet neighbors and be part of the community.

If you can give us some of your time or want more information, please call: (508)295-7072, email: onsetvillage@yahoo.com or complete the volunteer form at the bottom of this page.


The OBA sponsors events all year long. Click here for the current list of events.  We ALWAYS need volunteers on the day of the events.    We need people to help set up, sell tickets and tee shirts,  paint faces, provide information and clean up.  We are very flexible.  Whatever time you can give will be greatly appreciated.


Do you have a special knack for raising money?  We need you.  The OBA relies 100% on donations to run the office and sponsor events. If you can help us identify donation and sponsor opportunities, we would love your help.


Interested in planning an event?  We need volunteers to help organized and execute each event.  This usually involves meetings in advance of the event as well as participation on the day of the event.


The office at 4 Union Ave, Onset  is open Monday-Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. and is entirely run by volunteers. If you have some time to answer phones, answer questions or just do some general office work, we would love to have your help.


Onset Bay Association is seeking girls and boys between the ages of 12-18 to join the newly-formed Onset Bay Junior Association. This group meets monthly and will helps out with community projects appropriate to their age. Young ideas are needed.


We need volunteers to perform weeding and watering at the bandshell and Onset Pier. This does not require any specific commitment of time. We can use whatever time you have to give at your convenience.
