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 committees (standing and ad hoc) that do not require your physical presence.

STEP ONE

New Volunteer

  • Join/Start an Alumnae Association.
  • Complete our Be Involved Skills Assessment if you are interested in serving as a volunteer. This form is the first step to all volunteer roles and allows us to see 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 a board.
  • 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 you passion and skills. Complete the Be Involved Skills Assessment.
