- Optional volunteer work opportunities with time commitments and involvement levels that fit your schedule.
Additionally, members of MDC LEADS can use their professional and social networks to help tell the story of MDC in the community and advocate for the work we do. This can be done in very informal ways like simply telling your network about MDC, to more formal ways such as being a table captain for our annual MDC Share Breakfast.
