Degrees Of Change

Get Involved


We can’t do this without you. Degrees of Change relies on the generosity of volunteers to make our work possible. There are a variety of ways to get involved, and we’d love to welcome you to the team.

I’m inspired daily not only by the youth I work with, but by the partners and community folks I encounter in my time volunteering. It’s truly rewarding to make a difference and really feel like I’m part of a movement.
