Volunteer

Volunteering is an excellent opportunity to give back to your community, gain a stronger sense of achievement, problem solve, improve programs, make important networking contacts, have new experiences, teach others, build self-confidence, gain leadership experience, express gratitude for the help you have received, experience working on a team, and meet a diverse range of people.

ACCI has several committees that could use your leadership skills to help take the organization to the next level. Whether you have 1 hour a month or 5 hours a month available to volunteer, ACCI and the students would really appreciate your time and effort in such a worthy cause.
