Call for Volunteers


The 2024 Call for Volunteers is Now Open!

How it works:

Fill out the Volunteer Interest Form. An ANFP staff member will then contact you with instructions on formally applying. If you'd like, you may also nominate someone else for a volunteer role using the Interest Form. Be sure to inform the individual you have nominated them and that ANFP will contact them with instructions detailing how to formally apply.
