About the Volunteer Service Team
Volunteer Service Team members are alumnae volunteers appointed by International Council to serve chapters and clubs and have been trained to assist in a general or specific area.
The Volunteer Service Team (VST) is organized to serve communities. A community is a collegiate chapter, its house association and its corresponding alumnae chapters and clubs. Each of these communities has resource specialists, in several different subject areas (e.g. finance, recruitment, member development).
Interested in learning more or becoming a VST member? Visit this section of the website for an overview of the process, job descriptions and the application.
About volunteering at the local level
The strength and success of a alumnae group and collegiate chapter often depends upon the alumnae who volunteer as officers for their alumnae group and advisors for collegiate chapters.
If you are interested in serving a local collegiate chapter as an advisor or volunteering as an alumnae group officer, please contact International Headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Be a Pearl Sister for One of Our Upcoming Colonies!
Support an extraordinary group of Alpha Gamma Deltas by becoming a Pearl Sister! Once our colonization recruitment events begin at Appalachian State in fall 2014, we will be looking for Pearl Sisters for our new colony members. We will match each new member up with an alumna volunteer who will encourage her throughout her new member period. Pearl Sisters do not need to live close to the colony in order to participate. Communication can be anything from chatting on Facebook or Twitter to sending her cards, emails or phone calls. This is a great opportunity to convey that an Alpha Gam sister is always close! Check back soon for the application form.
