Overview

Volunteer your skills and expertise for an ACLP Committee that is in need of support!

At ACLP, our progress is fueled by the hard work of a dedicated network of over 200 volunteers. More than 25 different ACLP Committees, Work Groups, and Task Forces come together to achieve the goals laid out in the ACLP Strategic Plan.

Volunteering with ACLP is also an opportunity to network with child life professionals across the country and around the world, build new skills, and develop your leadership ability all while giving back to the larger child life community. Committee participation is also an excellent stepping stone for ACLP members aspiring to serve on the Board of Directors. Read more about each committee's charge and goals here.

Volunteers will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. All ACLP volunteers are required to be in good standing with ACLP and an ACLP Member when applying and throughout their term commitment.

We ask you to please consider joining a committee to help accomplish the critical work of the upcoming year!
