Engage with Pi Phi as a Volunteer

In 1867, 12 women laid the foundation for a sisterhood built on friendship, leadership and Lifelong Commitment. Over 150 years later, more than 2,000 dedicated volunteers serve and strengthen Pi Beta Phi every day.

More information about Pi Phi can be found in the Pi Beta Phi Overview Guide in the Resource Library. All volunteer job descriptions can be found in the Resource Library by selecting the "Job Description" under the "Documents by Topic." 

Volunteer With Pi Phi

Engaged volunteers share their time to lead Pi Phi, regardless of age, location and ability. Their leadership gives members the opportunity to practice and grow their skills, while contributing to our collective success. Join this network and support members across our sisterhood.

For volunteer roles such as AAC, CHC, or Foundation committees, no particular Pi Phi experience is required. We look for women with time, energy and a passion for Pi Phi! We provide training throughout the volunteer experience to make sure you feel comfortable and successful in your role.

Pi Phi respects our members and the busy lives they lead. The time commitment of our volunteers depends on their role, their scope of work and what their individual schedules allow. Communication is key to managing time and work effectively.

Every Pi Phi role is supported by a Friend and Leader for Life. Aside from having a direct mentor, we share important information through the Wine and Silver Blue News, provide training through online webinars, and host in-person trainings annually at College Weekend and biennially at convention.

Many local volunteers live near the chapter they serve, but some volunteers serve remotely as well. Travel depends on the role you hold and what’s needed for that position.

We believe in the power of reading.

For more than a century, we've worked to inspire a lifelong love of reading that can unlock true potential, creating a more literate and productive society. Today, Pi Phis participate, donate and advocate for literacy through our Read > Lead > Achieve® reading initiatives — just as our sisters first did in 1912.
