Volunteers are essential to the Mountain Education Foundation (MEF)! Whether you enjoy office work, event planning, fundraising, or working for a few hours at an event, MEF has opportunities available.
Please check out our current needs and let us know if you are willing and help to help us out!
Do you value what MEF does for your children, your schools and your community? Do you spend time on social media? Do you share things you value with friends and family? If so, MEF Ambassador is the volunteer opportunity for you! This group of MEF champions will help to spread the news about MEF to the community via email, social media and maybe a presentation or two (if you like public speaking). MEF Ambassadors will receive a short training (date TBD), but all volunteerism is done on your own time!
