Volunteer

Generally speaking, Federal agencies are prohibited by law (section 1342 of title 31, United States Code) from accepting volunteer service. No person may provide unpaid service to the Government or provide service with the understanding that he or she will waive pay. Exceptions to this prohibition are provided only for:

  • employment in emergencies involving the protection of life or property;
  • employment of assistants to handicapped employees;
  • employment of experts and consultants; and
  • employment of students to further their educational goals.

Identifying Volunteer Opportunities

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not maintain a centralized database of volunteer opportunities. Contact the respective CDC organization if you are interested in volunteering.
