How to Volunteer

ACT runs two project cycles per year: Spring-Summer and Fall-Winter.

  • Volunteer for Spring-Summer projects in January for projects that launch in March.
  • Volunteer for Fall-Winter projects in July for projects that launch in September.
  • Project opportunities are posted on this page in January and in July; they are also emailed to all Bay Area alumni during those months.

See our current round of projects (already in process) below.
