Have Fun Volunteering

The Sierra Club is a grassroots organization, and volunteers are essential to the health of the organization. Our goal is to provide any member who wants to help out the opportunity to do so. Volunteering is a great way to learn about the issues we're working on, have fun and meet other active Sierra Club members.

Other volunteer opportunities are available, most requiring a commitment of just a few hours a month.

Join a Committee!

Join your fellow Sierra Club members and get involved in one of the many Capital Group committees and groups! 

Conservation Committee: The Conservation Committee is the center of conservation activism for the group.  Our mission:

  • Watch over continuing environmental issues
  • Advocate for laws and regulations to protect the environment

Political Committee: Did you ever see an environmental problem that you wished you could change but had no idea how to start? Or maybe you started going to public hearings or talked to your government officials, but gave up due to the complexity of the process?  Join our political committee to learn more about the legislative process and how you can make a difference.  The Political Committee meets every first Wednesday of the month, 6:30 pm, please contact: for the location. , for further directions, contact:
