A2Ethics is a volunteer organization. We are committed to creating public philosophy and ethics initiatives for youth and adults. We are all dedicated and enthusiastic philosophy fans.
Our exceptional volunteers moderate, judge and score the annual Michigan High School Ethics Bowl and its parallel programs, among them A2Ethics' Case Writing Awards. A2Ethics volunteers also transform into emcees, judges, timers, scorekeepers and question-askers at the annual spirited and convivial Big Ethical Question Slams in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.
Please join our growing A2Ethics volunteer corps by sending us a note at Contact Us.
There are several other ways you can get involved:
- Write a case study for the annual Michigan High School Ethics Bowl. Michigan Bowl case studies are special. Anyone with current or past ties to Michigan is invited to write the ethical issue scenarios that student teams present and discuss on Bowl weekend. Michigan case writers are a phenomenal group, and come from many different professions and occupations, among them medicine, business, the building trades, education, sport, the military and media.
- Field a team for the Big Ethical Question Slam, our annual "think-on-your-feet fest" in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. We love welcoming seasoned and new Slam teams from community nonprofits, local businesses, unions and trade associations, clubs and schools.
- Participate in a podcast interview. We love to hear about what ethics signifies and morally means in your professional life. For example, consider discussing some of the ethical issues that characterize your work in the Working Ethics podcast series.
- Zoom into A2EthicsVirtual Ethics Symposia, conversations in our cross generational ethics community about a wide range of topics with a theme, suggested and put together by our volunteers. These Design Your Own Ethics Symposia are all about listening, learning and reasoning together. And making connections with other philosophy enthusiasts.
- Attend and take part in one of our community programs that focus a philosophy lens on major ethical issues that have local and statewide impact, and simultaneously have major consequences in the wider world.
