Volunteer with Ashoka's Global Office

Support Ashoka’s global office in Arlington, Virginia and Ashoka’s community of nearly 3000 Fellows worldwide. Volunteers are sometimes needed both on-site and virtually to assist with such tasks as research and writing, helping at special events or compiling case studies on Fellows’ work.

If you don't see an opportunity that is a match for your interests or skills, please let us know how you would like to be involved by sending a completed copy of the Volunteer Form along with your CV to binabinett@ashoka.org with “Ashoka Global” in the subject line. With your permission we will confidentially circulate your information within the office to see if anyone could use your help. We are very lucky to have many energetic and talented volunteers at any given time so we can't guarantee anything will be available, but we'd still love to hear from you!

Host an Ashoka Fellow or Staff Member

This is a wonderful way to learn first-hand about the exciting work Fellows are undertaking and to provide them a supportive and comfortable home away from home.

If you have a spare bedroom (essential), live within walking distance of a Washington, DC metro station and bus stop and would be willing to host an Ashoka Fellow or staff member visiting from another country, please send an email to binabinett@ashoka.org with “Homestay” in the subject line. Please include your name, address, languages spoken, and metro or bus stations near to your home, along with any other relevant details about yourself and your residence. The typical length of a visit is two to five nights. 

If you live in another state and are centrally located or near a subway or bus line, we would love to hear from you as well! Often, Ashoka Fellows travel to other parts of the country seeking support of their work or are participating in conferences. Having a welcoming home in which to stay can make all the difference in their experience and the memories they will take back to their home countries.
