Volunteer with Etown

Giving the Gift of Your Time & Talents

No matter the cause, programs are supported in amazing ways by those who give of their time and talents. For members of the extended Etown family, the College's "Educate for Service" motto is in our hearts and a priority in our lives.

Whether you support efforts to recruit future Blue Jays; assist with connecting alumni with each other and the College; mentor a current student or speak in a class; or help with fundraising efforts; there are many opportunities for all of us who love our Blue and Gray.
