Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get involved?

  • Join our email list!
  • Come to events! We have weekly meetings and plan on hosting other events throughout the year.
  • Organize an event! If you have an event you’d like to see happen, let’s make it happen.
  • Volunteer! We have many volunteer opportunities ranging from leadership positions to support roles.

We understand that people are busy and it’s hard to make a firm commitment. Many of our volunteer positions are flexible, and our meetings are easy to drop-in and drop-out as needed. If you’re interested in getting involved, especially in volunteer positions, please don’t let concerns about time availability stop you! If you’d like to ask about our volunteer positions or have any other questions, please reach out to us.
