Community Volunteers

How does the community contribute to our work?

We benefit from others' voices and knowledge about the county. We recruit potential volunteers from our various networks.

We offer community members who live or work in Montgomery County the opportunity to volunteer with the foundation for a year. Volunteers participate in meetings and strategic discussions with our staff, board and committees.
