Become a Volunteer

WICE  has been a dynamic, all-volunteer organization for almost 50 years. We take great pride in the professional quality of our work and in providing a welcoming and satisfying environment for volunteers. 

Whether you are trying to develop a marketable skill, keep your resumé free of gaps, or you simply want to meet new people and have fun in Paris, WICE's volunteer program has a place for everyone.

We have four general categories of volunteer:

  • Board of Directors Members
  • Department Heads
  • Department Members
  • All-purpose Volunteers 

Board of Directors Members

Members of the Board of Directors are elected by the membership each year at an annual meeting, which is usually held in mid-July. The Board of Directors is a working board, with each member expected to take on some small, additional volunteer task. Each member is expected to make a minimum commitment of two years, and each position requires 7 - 10 hours a week.

WICE also has an open position for a Managing Director. The Managing Director attends board meetings and works with the board to ensure that action items stay on track and that the short-term activities of WICE align with WICE's longer-term goals and objectives.

Department Head Volunteers

WICE has six departments: Membership, Programs, Marketing, Human Resources, Information Technology, and Development.

Each of the six departments requires a leader, or Department Head, those leaders need to have some level of executive skill. Department Heads are expected to make a minimum commitment of at least one year, and each position requires 7 - 10 hours a week.

WICE currently has openings for a Marketing Director and a Development Director.

Department Volunteers

Department volunteers work somewhere in a department, usually in relatively well-defined jobs.

For example a department volunteer may:

  • Work in the Marketing Department as a graphics designer or as a social media manager;
  • Work in the Membership Department as an analyst;
  • Work in the Information Technology Department managing some aspect of WICE's IT systems;
  • Work in the Development Department researching grants.

Department volunteers are expected to make a minimum commitment of at least one year, and they can expect to work 5 - 7 hours a week.

We have a variety of department volunteer positions open at any given time. If you are interested in this sort of position, please contact us at

Multi-purpose Volunteers

Multi-purpose volunteers may be called upon to help with the variety of unexpected or irregular situations that arise.

For example:

  • When we have an apéro, we might need someone to help collect tickets at the door;
  • When we have a pétanque game, we might need someone to help keep score;
  • When we set up a stand at an all-day marketing event, we might need someone to help man the table.

Multi-purpose volunteers are not expected to make any particular commitment, either in duration of the volunteer position or in terms of hours per week. These are strictly ad hoc assignments.
