How do I become a Volunteer Leader?

Volunteer Leaders are integral to Besa! As a Volunteer Leader, you’re committed to our mission of connecting more people to community service, you’re a strong communicator who enjoys building authentic relationships with others, and you're committed to high-touch customer service.

To be considered for the Volunteer Leader program, we ask that you:

  • Have volunteered at least 30 hours with Besa in the last six months.
  • Have volunteered at three different Besa volunteer experiences.


  • Lead at least one volunteer experience per month and attend one volunteer experience per month
  • Communicate to Besa staff when you'll need to step away from leading due to work, illness, or unforeseen circumstances.
  • Attend and participate in team meetings (3-4x per year), team opportunities (3-4x per year), and Besa events.
  • Agree to Besa's Volunteer Leader Agreement.
