We Love Our Volunteers

Get Involved: Share Your Time and Talent

Volunteer applications for 2023-2024 are now closed.

SHAPE America is a member-driven organization, guided by volunteers. Our committed volunteers are fundamental to SHAPE America’s success and serve on program councils, publication review committees, and task forces.

As a volunteer, you’ll help shape the direction of SHAPE America and the profession. You’ll also meet new colleagues, forge valuable and lasting relationships, and make a difference on the key issues affecting health and physical educators.

We are committed to fostering greater equity, diversity, and inclusion within our member community – and within our volunteer leadership opportunities. We hope you’ll get involved!
