Your time and talents are invaluable. We are so thankful for our volunteers who contribute to the success of Delta Phi Epsilon. You make a difference in our sisterhood. In return, we promise you’ll feel fulfilled and have a renewed love for Delta Phi Epsilon. You’ll grow your network, your skillset and your appreciation for our sorority.
While advising a collegiate chapter is the most popular volunteer option, we understand your time or location may not allow for this opportunity. There are multiple opportunities, such as committees (standing and ad hoc) work, that do not require your physical presence.
On this page you can review our volunteer pipeline to leadership; from beginning your journey (new), to becoming a seasoned volunteer (advanced), and eventually be selected to lead our organization (experienced). Next, you will find all the available volunteer and short-term engagement opportunities. These include a job description, expectations and application link. Finally, you can review the board-driven committees. These are the opportunities described in step two of the volunteer pipeline.
