There are many different ways to get involved, from helping with an event to leading an action team. Depending on your interest and capacity, you can choose the level of involvement that works for you. Read on for more details.
One-time opportunities: These are volunteer opportunities that require a short time commitment. They are often small tasks that help our project staff, or that support an event. Examples are: join a fundraiser, do some research, make phone calls, distribute magazines, take photographs, help with livestreaming an event, or send a letter. You’ll hear about these opportunities through the biweekly volunteer newsletter.
Longer term opportunities: These are volunteer opportunities that require a longer time commitment, and often more responsibility. Examples are: Join an action committee, volunteer at the front desk, facilitate a series of workshops, do public outreach, get involved with a project, organize an event or fundraiser.
Team Co-Chair: Each action team is chaired or led by volunteers. Our co-chairs work with staff and volunteers to organize projects and initiatives and facilitate meetings. If you’re passionate about an environmental issue, this can be a great opportunity to explore a leadership role and have the chance to work with other passionate folks. Co-chair positions are filled as needed.
Board of Directors: The EAC is governed by a volunteer board of directors. Our board helps shape the organization and steer us into the future! We welcome expressions of interest in joining the board at any time.
