Volunteer for BWA—Enhance Your Skills and Resume
Move off the sidelines! We have many ideas and projects that go on over the course of the year, and even the smallest amount of assistance helps.
Your assistance has perks, too: like added oomph for your resume, additional skills for your profile, plus the good feeling of helping a worthwhile group that is active in the community. By volunteering you can easily gain salable new skills in management, nonprofit organizations, public relations, writing, editing, or web publishing.
Consider taking on or becoming part of the team for one of these simple but necessary tasks that you see below. We’ll even provide you with any training you may need.
