Thanks for your interest in volunteering with DEF! We always need motivated people willing to advance the disruption and innovative thinking in the National Security ecosystem. We exist to change the status quo and push the envelope as a virtuous insurgency.
To set your expectations, something we try to do is rigorously protect the culture both within the global ecosystem and the national-level volunteer team that makes DEF the organization that it has become. Our growth over the last few years has been really exciting and we are looking forward to more awesome things in the future. We want to make sure we plug the right folks into the right places based on their interests, skills, and the needs of the team. When those three things align, we have found that volunteers become highly engaged and contribute in meaningful ways.
If you are unsure about anything, select for roles and teams you think sound interesting--we will make sure you get plugged in to a team that can benefit from your skills and ideas!
Feel free to give us a shout at
