. Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer opportunities are available for SAAGH members, family and guests via Shell and the Shell Alumni Association of Greater Houston. Retirees are encouraged to support and participate in Shell sponsored volunteer projects throughout the year.  We are continuously working to support and enhance Shell sponsored volunteer events.

For 2018 we will strive to increase that support and participation by continuing the progress made and providing opportunities for Shell retirees and SAAGH members to contribute to the community, education and environment. 

Projects are identified early in the year and added as the year progresses. So check this page, as well as the SAAGH Facebook Group, for periodic updates as more projects and details are added. Registration links will also be provided on this page as details become available.

- John Bowser, SAAGH Vice President
