Volunteer Interest Inquiry - CEA
As we start the process of growing and establishing a sustainable, flexible structure for the Civic Engagement Alliance with programs. To achieve this, we need to involve others.
We are ALL about people power and creating a culture of inclusion. Our volunteer management philosophy is to provide meaningful work that fits each individual’s unique skill set, personality, and schedule.
Please take a few moments to tell us about what interests YOU so we can best utilize what you have to offer.
The Civic Engagement Alliance has a vision of building a flexible network based on grassroots principles. Volunteers would have opportunities to build new relationships, participate in activities that interest them on a schedule that works for them. Members could participate on occasion or frequently. This would be a membership, but there would be no cost to join. Does this type of membership interest you?
