Volunteer with CEF


Become a CEF Advocate

CEF Advocates work side by side with individuals who are struggling with unemployment, saving for affordable housing, or working their way out of poverty.  As a CEF Member Advocate, you’ll have the opportunity to work closely alongside one of our CEF Members, providing financial coaching, access to resources, and building a supportive environment.

No experience necessary – CEF provides training to all new volunteers!

Student Leadership 

Are you an existing Advocate who is interested in becoming even more deeply involved? There are endless opportunities to help shape and grow the way we do things, through the Admin Team in Durham and the Leadership Team in Chapel Hill. Applications and selections take place annually at the end of the spring semester. See the “Our Team” page to get to know some of these roles, keep an eye out for the annual application process, and feel free to ask any of our staff if you have any questions!
