We’re looking for well informed, knowledgeable, consumer-minded individuals (students, professionals, retirees, etc.) to join our volunteer team,  assisting Tampa Bay area consumers who call our help line.

Our 8’s Army volunteers staff the 8 On Your Side Help line weekdays and offer direction and/or possible course of action to commonly asked consumer questions.

The ideal volunteer would have life and/or industry knowledge experience in a particular field, for example, real estate, automotive, nonprofit, contractual, educational and/or financial industries.

The goal is to be able to assist callers with their issues and direct them to the proper agency that can help them seek resolution to their problem.
