There’s a lot of work to do, so our volunteers are our most prized assets. Whether you are a student, working adult or retiree; educator, professional, clergy, business owner, or South Sudanese living in the United States, we would love to have you join us in this movement. As a volunteer, you can work on a PESS committee, help plan an event, write for our newsletter, or assist with PR/Media. Got a creative way of helping out? Let us know! We love to do things a little differently. Here are some ideas.

Raise Funds for Rural South Sudanese Communities

Have a garage sale, sewing party, film screening, or 5K—the possibilities are endless, so use your imagination! We’ll support you how we can, so be sure to keep us in the loop!

Apply for an Internship

Your development as a leader is also important to us. We offer internships to help develop programs, fundraise and manage our organization; these internships may be eligible for college credit. If you’re interested in fostering your own skills within PESS, apply for an internship.

Volunteer Your Time

We have needs for event support, writing for our newsletter, office work and in many other areas. Contact us and we will make good use of your skills and interests.
