Volunteer with EA DC

Build skills, build connections and have an impact through volunteering with EA DC! EA DC has a new volunteer program and we are seeking volunteers to work with us! We now have the resources and capacity to direct you in any level of involvement you’d like to have in helping EA DC. In addition to helping EA DC grow and thrive, volunteering can offer valuable skill building, connections to the local and broader EA community, and experience volunteering for an EA organization. We’re excited to move forward with our new EA DC volunteer program and hope you’ll join us!

Do you have capacity to share what you know with college EA groups in the area? If the answer’s yes, we have a new sign-up form where you can volunteer to speak to local college groups or mentor local college students.
