Get involved

There are many ways to get involved in the Steam Exchange. Between after school classes, workshops, events,  community projects, and fixing up our building, we are always in need of volunteers and donations. If you would like to volunteer, send us a message. If you would like to donate, check out how you can support us below. 


The Steam Exchange is working diligently to open their permanent location at 714 S. Clay St. But, renovating a former liquor store does not come without cost. We have made amazing strides in fixing the building with help from numerous volunteers, organizations and companies. Thank you to all of you who have supported us! Donations are greatly appreciated and help us run our programs for youth in Smoketown!
