Together, we can accomplish incredible things


Volunteers are at the heart of ACTFL‘s work. Because of the contributions of volunteers’ time, talent, and expertise, ACTFL is able to provide the essential information and tools, vibrant community, and exceptional experiences that we all value so highly.

ACTFL Volunteers: We couldn't do it without you!

Our volunteers are the heartbeat of the ACTFL community. As an ACTFL volunteer, you will:

  • Give back to the world language community
  • Share your voice by taking an active role in identifying future education trends and issues
  • Make professional business and personal connections by working alongside other members in the world language community. This will help broaden your network and build lasting connections with other educators
  • Enhance your leadership skills by expanding on skills and roles you may not get to take on in your current position

We are seeking to build an energetic, inclusive, and innovative corps of volunteer leaders. Together, we can accomplish incredible things and move the world language profession forward. Are you up for the challenge?
