Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come to these meetings, even if you haven’t become a member just yet.
Wise Energy for Virginia
SAMS is a part of the Wise Energy for Virginia Coalition which has weekly strategy calls every Friday at 11am. All SAMS members are encouraged to come down to the office for these calls to keep up-to-date on our involvement in the Coalition.
Become an Intern
SAMS also runs an internship program where young people can put in regular volunteer hours in support of the mission of SAMS. We can provide food and housing to interns, and stipends are a possibility for the future. Some interns have even received college credit for their work with SAMS. Follow this link to read more about our internship program and to learn how to apply.
If you’re not sure what you want to do, but you know you want to get involved, just call into the office and ask how you can help out.
