Volunteer: Echelon Member

Echelon seeks to mobilize the next generation for The Salvation Army by providing opportunities for young adults to engage with the organization through fellowship and networking, donations and fundraising, and service and volunteering. 

We are looking for energetic individuals to join our board!  The board meets once a month and asks board members to attend as much as possible.  There are many open positions; we’d love to talk with you about how you may benefit from being a part of the board!

We are also looking for “members” who are a part of our group but not on the board!  Members attend our events and have a big impact on The Salvation Army, without the commitment of a once a month board meeting.  

Learn more about Echelon at http://actiongroup.sawmni.org/action-group/
