Volunteer Resources

Volunteers bring life to Duke Alumni events and programs all over the world. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Duke Alumni events are canceled through December 2020. We look forward to returning to in-person events in the future.

In the interim, we've assembled resources and tips from some of our best volunteers to help you plan successful virtual events and energize your Duke Alumni community.

How to Plan a Virtual Event

Before you start planning your event, please check in with your regional director.

Duke Alums Engage Planning Resources

Because of COVID-19, we are unable to host DAE events, but we hope to return to in-person DAE events in Spring 2021.

To help you create and execute a successful project, we have worked with past Duke Alums Engage participants to develop these tools.
