Call for Volunteers!


We've decided to up our game and take on some new volunteer positions! A lot of people have told us, "I want to get more involved!" and we just haven't done a great job of making new opportunities available. So we're going to fix that.

Everything should be about 2 hours per week, maximum. I'm hoping volunteers take a lot of initiative in kicking butt and working creatively with the leadership team. I'll provide a lot of support and hopefully we'll have a lot of fun together. If you're looking for an internship with your university, let me know and we'll work to make it happen.

If you're keen, email us:
