DEF relies on a team of exceptional volunteers to support our small professional staff to further our mission of bringing decision skills to youth. DEF volunteers are teachers and students, academics and business people, executives and social workers, teenagers and retirees. Many have devoted their professional lives to the study and implementation of good decision practices. Volunteers help with training students directly, introducing DEF within schools and after school programs, developing new curriculum, training teachers, fundraising, and conducting community outreach. Volunteering with DEF provides an opportunity to join a dedicated group of exceptional people inspired by a wonderful cause.
