Thank you for your interest in helping ACCA further our mission through volunteering. Last year alone our volunteers served over 18,000 hours, or the equivalent of an additional 8.5 full time employees. We simply could not do what we do without our volunteers.

It is important to us that your volunteer experience is meaningful, and we are here to help you find an opportunity that matches your passion and your busy schedule. We have regular volunteer opportunities as well as special events and work days, and we are happy to talk with about these and any new service ideas you may have. Please call our Jen Welborn, Volunteer Coordinator, at (706) 549-4850, or click the “I Want to Volunteer” button below.
