Society volunteers share their talents, build their skillsets, create memories and make a difference! Whatever your goals and your comfort zone, we have an opportunity for you.
Share your story and make sure your legislators vote with the needs of people living with MS in mind. Become an MS Activist, join the MS Activist Network, become a part of your local Government Relations Advisory Committee (GRAC) and attend the Public Policy Conference and/or State Action Days.
Get involved with ongoing initiatives that offer support, education and programs for the MS Community. Opportunities include engaging and building connections with the Black MS community, the Latinx and Hispanic MS community, those newly diagnosed with MS, children and teens with MS, Veterans and others.
Our events are not possible without volunteers. We accept all ages and abilities and can accommodate groups (numbers vary by event). You can join us as a volunteer at Walk MS, Bike MS, leadership events, Challenge Walk MS or even do your own fundraiser! Volunteer opportunities vary by event, so look up special events near you to learn more.
From mailings and packet building for events to data projects and storage organization, our offices have a variety of needs throughout the year. Email VolunteerMS@nmss.org to learn more.
