Volunteer Opportunities

GSA offers a range of volunteer opportunities, from quick “micro” tasks that take a few minutes to multi-year term positions and many in between. Some positions accept volunteers year-round. Others open for recruitment during specific times of the year. The calendar below is a guide to the positions we are recruiting for and when we accept applications.

Apply for all open positions on our Volunteer page on GSA Connect. Check out the page as new opportunities are added throughout the year that may not be included in the calendar below.
