give back to dphie, we need you

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.

STEP ONE

New Volunteer

  • Join an Alumnae Association.
  • Complete our Be Involved form below  if you are interested in serving as a volunteer. This form is the first step to all volunteer roles and allows us to identify where you will have the best volunteer experience.
  • Our most common and needed volunteer position is Chapter Advisory Board members. If advising does not interest you, there are opportunities to assist with colony recruitment, Engage U, staff-driven committees, ad-hoc committees, and other as-needed roles.

STEP TWO

Advanced Volunteer

  • After succeeding as a leader of an Alumnae Association or as a CAB volunteer, you may be asked to join a committee of one of our three boards.
  • Have you developed your skills with another non-profit, but never served locally for DPhiE? We would love to have you serve on a committee that meets your passion and skills. Complete the Be Involved Form below.

STEP THREE

Experienced Volunteers

  • Successful committee leaders will be developed by the Governance Committee and recommended for governance board level service.
  • Occassionally, seasoned volunteers with other non-profit board experience will be nominated directly to a board for their skill-set and experience outside of DPhiE. Please contact [email protected] to discuss this opportunity.
