The Society is growing and developing more ambitious programs, and we need help from creative, energetic, and ambitious people to make sure everything works. Below are opportunities for five or more volunteers to join our Central Staff. Take a look and let us know if you can help!

Many of these positions offer great ways for student members to get more involved. Positions with “director” in the title are alumni-preferred.

Digital Media Assistants

We’re looking for two volunteers to help manage our social media accounts, email newsletters, and audiovisual projects. The digital media assistants will work with the Communications Director to ensure Delta Phi Epsilon members, Society partners, and the general public know who we are, what we do, and why they should support our programs.

To that end, we’re looking for creative people interested in experimenting with ways to engage the public on the following platforms:

  • Mass Email
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Youtube
  • LinkedIn

If you are one of those people, let us know today at contact@dpeforeignaffairs.org.

Communications Director

We need a Communications Director to take charge of our marketing and outreach strategy. The director will supervise the digital media assistants and work with our other volunteers to form and carry out a public relations strategy, maintain contact with Delta Phi Epsilon chapters, and coordinate promotions with the Society’s partner organizations.
