Are you passionate about our mission and learning about global issues? Interested in meeting others who are also interested in what's happening in the world?

We are looking for a few volunteers to help at Council events. Duties range from working the registration desk to greeting members. Topics may be serious, but we always promise to keep it FUN!

Volunteers attend our events without cost. Let us know if you are interested in receiving more information and we will be in touch.
