Volunteering with APIRG
APIRG’s volunteer positions are designed to allow volunteers to develop skills, build relationships, and participate as much or as little as they like. Volunteers work on committees and are actively engaged in decision-making for all projects. Students and non-students alike are welcome!
All volunteers receive orientation. Until it is safe to gather again, all committee meetings and activities will be happening remotely.
