How to Volunteer

ACT Will Not Run Projects in Fall ’22-Winter ’23

In the spring of 2020, ACT quickly responded to the global pandemic by immediately shifting our work online and aligning the program with the GSB’s Action Plan for Racial Equity. Now ACT needs to focus on strategically addressing questions related to sustainably fulfilling its mission in a changed and changing landscape. We will update the website with additional information as available and look forward to continuing to engage volunteers and serve nonprofit clients for many years to come.

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.
