Volunteer Opportunities

The ACT Program Foundation always needs and appreciates volunteers (including high school students who need service learning hours)!  It takes dedicated volunteers to make successful events happen. There are many different ways to help:

Helping with ACT Program Foundation Events and Activities

Looking for a way to help?  Get involved with ACT Program Foundation activities!  Whether it’s behind the scenes in the planning stages, or helping run activities on the day of an event, your help is needed and greatly appreciated.  If you’d like to help organize events, solicit donations, create and monitor business partnerships, or otherwise contribute your talents, please email David Bleidistel at chairman@actprogramfoundation.org.


Helping run The ACT Program Foundation

There is an ongoing need for volunteers with experience in such areas as organizing and running a business, promotion, legal services and financial procedures.  If you have such experience, please consider serving on The ACT Program Foundation Board of Directors or on a committee, and lending your professional expertise.  Email David Bleidistel at chairman@actprogramfoundation.org for more information.
