TeamPeds: Volunteers

You want to volunteer but may only have limited time. You want to be an engaged leader but can’t make a big commitment. We know this so we designed TeamPeds: Volunteers just for you! As much as we strive to help you advance your career, we need your expertise to advance the profession and organization. We value your expertise in child health and advanced practice nursing issues. You can make a difference through TeamPeds: Volunteers!

Our new TeamPeds: Volunteers program gives you the opportunity to build your leadership skills and share your professional experience on the projects you want, when you want and why you want. You can choose projects that most interest you and work with your busy schedule. NAPNAP’s traditional, longer-term volunteer opportunities, like Executive Board and committee service, are still available if those fit your lifestyle.

How does it work?
Simply update your personal member record with additional information about your professional experience – everything from presenting at regional or national meetings to writing for scholarly or consumer publications to practicing in clinical specialties. For those who have never updated their member record, we have created this helpful how-to video.

  1. If you're not already, log in to the website in the upper portion of the screen.
  2. Then, click on My Account.
  3. Select TeamPeds: Volunteers from the menu.
  4. When the new screen opens, check the boxes that apply to your knowledge and experience.
  5. Save your information and that’s it!
  6. You can then use the navigation in the blue bar above the check box area to visit another section of our website.

As new projects are initiated by NAPNAP, our team will query the TeamPeds: Volunteers database to determine which members have an interest in and necessary knowledge and experience to, for example, vet a position statement or conference abstract, be a liaison to an outside advisory group, write an article for Ready, Set, Grow, share opinions on new initiatives, services or clinical projects or participate in interesting short-term projects essential to the operation and growth of the profession and NAPNAP.

What do I need to do?
After you update your member record to participate in TeamPeds: Volunteers, be on the lookout for occasional emails about volunteer opportunities for upcoming projects. The more experiences you list in our database, the more often your skills will align with our project needs leading to emails from our team. We promise you won’t be flooded by spam and you are always free to accept or decline volunteer requests. We will be in touch with every member of Team Peds: Volunteers a few times during the year to keep everyone apprised of the latest news.
