“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.
