BerkShares Virtual Booth

Who We Are

BerkShares inc. is the place-based, democratically structured non-profit organization that manages BerkShares, Our Currency for the Berkshire Region.

What We Do

Launched in 2006, BerkShares works in collaboration with participating local banks, local businesses, and local non-profit organizations to strengthen the Berkshire regional economy through a local currency program and related pursuits.

Volunteer Opportunities

BerkShares, Inc. seeks local Currency Ambassadors to help launch our new mobile payments app. Ambassadors will engage with small businesses and the public at community events, canvass central business districts, and help merchants download and set up digital BerkShares app.

This is an in-person volunteer position with a time commitment of 2-5 hours per week. Use of a vehicle is required and travel expenses will be reimbursed. Training will be provided.

As an Ambassador, you will be contributing to the vibrancy of your local economy, getting acquainted with your local community and small businesses, and helping build bonds between local producers and consumers. Join us!
