VOLUNTEER . INTERN

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Mahatma Gandhi

The Dallas Institute invites you to join us in delivering enriching and thought-provoking classes, groups and events. Volunteers, who possess an outward focus, are needed to serve in the areas of Administration, Event Management and Hospitality. A sample of duties include: greeting guests, answering general questions, setting up for events, assisting with mass mail outs, and more.

In exchange, volunteers are welcome to attend classes and/or programs, and you’ll have the distinct pleasure of knowing you’ve aided in furthering the mission of the Dallas Institute. Yet, above these is the greatest return – knowing you’ve been in service to others.

To pursue a volunteer opportunity or to inquire about an internship, please complete the Volunteer/Intern Form at the bottom of the page. If you have previously submitted one, you do not need to again.

For additional information contact Ann Fields at 214-981-8801.
