Leadership Opportunities

FND staff with Leadership Council members in 2016.

Friends and Neighbors Day

The Volunteer Center is looking for engaging, passionate leaders to join our Friends & Neighbors Day Leadership Council! Prior Friends and Neighbors Day experience is a plus, however, not required to apply. Connect to our local community, develop your leadership skills, and gain valuable service experience!

Leadership Council members are volunteers selected to be Team Leaders on FND service projects, and play a big role in making FND better.  The Leadership Council also gives you valuable experience and leadership training for future positions with the Volunteer Center or other organizations. If you want to play a role in making FND an amazing experience, apply in September. Before applying, please make sure that you are available for at least 3 upcoming FND events this academic year.

Responsibilities and Benefits:

  • Serve as Team Leader on (3) Friends & Neighbors Days
  • Receive leadership training before each FND
  • Be a part of Leadership Council Debrief Meetings (after your service) to share ideas about how to improve FND
  • Become eligible to be nominated for a Service Award if you fulfill your Leadership Council responsibilities

August 19, 2017

Alternative Breaks

The Volunteer Center is providing volunteer leadership opportunities for participants on Alternative Break trips to support their Team Leader as an Alternative Break Assistant! This leadership position will give students a larger role during their alternative break trip and experience that they can use to apply to become a trip leader in the future. More about this opportunity will be posted in late September.
