The AILG is a volunteer organization, by and for the MIT FSILG community. In 2015, we had over 220 alumni/ae who volunteered! Our volunteers make it possible for AILG committees to work with students, MIT, and other stakeholders to study issues important to independent living groups and make recommendations that take into account our viewpoints.

Interested in getting involved? We can do even more with your help! Whether you’re an alumni/ae of MIT or an alumni/ae from another university, if you want to help the MIT FSILG community serve current and future students, consider joining us.

Alumni/ae volunteers are needed for:

  • Making accreditation visits. Accreditation teams visit each MIT FSILG regularly, to help the groups examine their own strengths and weaknesses, spread best practices, and discuss community expectations. If you can spend just one weekend day during a semester, you can be on an accreditation team! Learn more about the accreditation program.
  • AILG committees. The real work of the AILG happens in committees. Are you interested in a current issue, challenge, or opportunity for MIT FSILGs, such as mentoring or parent outreach? Would you be willing to share your expertise to help the community improve our facilities or finances? Many committees are seeking additional members.

Interested in learning more, but not sure where to start?

Look for interesting events, get in touch with the AILG Board, attend quarterly plenary meetings, join mailing lists.

Here’s some information to help you get started volunteering for the MIT FSILG system. (You’ll need an MIT Infinite Connection account.)
