Volunteer Opportunities

YPIA is a 100% volunteer run organization. If you are interested in being a part of our dedicated team, take a look at our volunteer openings below!

Program Assistants develop YPIA's most well-known portion of the organization: our events. Program Assistants work closely with our Program Directors in developing, planning, and hosting regionally-focused events. This includes developing topics for discussion groups, brainstorming for potential speakers, logistics management, and event support.

Become a Program Assistant for any one of our six Programs: Western Hemisphere, Europe & Eurasia, Africa, Middle East & North Africa, Asia & Pacific, and Transatlantic Security.


The Membership Experience Manager plays a key role in ensuring that new YPIA members feel welcome to the organization. Under the leadership of the Vice President of Development, the Membership Experience Manager will focus on matters such as following up with non-members who attend open house events, on-boarding new members, and hosting new member orientations.


One of the ways that YPIA ensures quality events and solid membership engagement is through membership analytics. We track everything from how many people attend events to how many people become members following these events.  YPIA is searching for a Membership Analytics Specialist who can help track the information we need to improve our members' experience.  This position will report to the VP of Development to maintain our database and work with the Social Media Manager to develop analysis for better YPIA engagement.


YPIA is looking for multiple social media gurus who can help manage our multiple social media accounts. This includes launching our Instagram account, maintaining our Facebook page and Twitter accounts, and coordinating posts for our Medium account.  This position reports to the VP of Communications.  YPIA's social media assistants will ensure that the same message is communicated through each of our platforms without being redundant.
