If you answered “Yes” to these questions and are interested in volunteering or being a discussions series speaker, you can sign up here. Any additional questions, comments, or concerns can be directed to volunteer@eyej.org.

You will receive a confirmation email after you register with full details. We’ll walk you through every step of the way so that you can get the most out of this valuable experience along with providing Curriculum and Training. Expect to receive a speaker document and information about your volunteer partner a week before your discussion date.

If you answered “No” but still would like to volunteer, consider being an EYEJ Coordinator.  An EYEJ Coordinator helps to facilitate the discussion series session by simply supporting the speakers, the role play game and collecting & distributing paperwork.
