Dear SBAN Family,
Question: What is the simplest way to:
1.  Give back to an incredible program that touched your life in a million different ways,
2.  Spread the word about the effectiveness of the "students teaching students" model,
3.  Contribute to SBAN's mission of providing valuable resources to alumni and to SB/BT programs?
Answer: Join the Club - Club 12, that is!  Since its launch, alumni from across the network have joined in our efforts by 1) contributing at least $12 or 2) spreading the word about Club 12 to fellow alumni as well as to your own friends and family.

International Office - E-newsletter Writers Wanted!
 
These weekly e-newsletters would not be possible without the hard work of our volunteer writers who are literally all over the world.  In order to give our readers more stories from a variety of voices, we are looking for more writers to join our team. 
 
 

Alumni Communities - Volunteers Wanted!
Thanks to a group of passionate and dedicated volunteers, our alumni community in Washington D.C. is really taking off!  As we move south to Florida, we are looking for local volunteers to help get alumni communities off the ground in the following areas:
 
Miami - To help find lost alumni
Fort Lauderdale - 5K Run with the Mayor
Boca Raton - To help find lost alumni
 
You do not have to be an SB/BT alumni to volunteer - we welcome anyone who wants to bring their talents to the table.
