Committed to supporting youth

ZEAL Creative Studios is committed to supporting youth in the community while offering a positive and safe environment. This Energy Exchange Program (EEP) is designed for volunteers to exchange their time and energy for cumulative rewards based on a volunteer’s interests.

More information

An EEP is a great way to earn experience on a resume and a chance at a positive reference letter from Kate McNamara, ZEAL’s owner. It’s also an opportunity to receive quality lessons from Kate on pottery, photography, and marketing-related topics.

In exchange for time, rewards will be granted when a certain number of cumulative hours are achieved.

Example rewards:

  • Pottery wheel time
  • Clay
  • Tools
  • Gift cards
  • ZEAL clothing
  • Photoshoots & more


An EEP Volunteer is the most important part of the day-to-day operations at ZEAL. They are integral to our studio's maintenance, cleanliness, and atmosphere. 

General duties typically include, but are not limited to:

  • Maintaining the cleanliness of the studio (e.g., floor, tools, etc.) 
  • Trimming, sanding, or glazing pots 
  • Prepping for and assisting with trade shows 
  • Reclaiming clay 
  • Sorting or packing orders
  • Taking product photos 
  • Assisting with photoshoots
  • Uploading products to the website
