Volunteering with Our Team

Volunteer. We welcome volunteers year-round, with no special requirements. Many of our team members join us for just one hour per week at our main meeting! At the meetings, we share major project updates, seek feedback on ethical and other questions that arise, and break into small groups to generate prompts for our kid, teen and adult diarists to respond to. The bigger and more diverse our team, the better those prompts (and our project) will be! Many of our volunteers have ended up joining sub-teams, where they’ve helped with a range of activities from redesigning our logo to transcribing diary entries to selecting stories to feature on our website each week. You do not need to be a current MSU student to volunteer with MI Diaries. Questions? Contact Dr. Betsy Sneller, project lead, sneller7@msu.edu.
