Get Involved

There are many ways to support WEDI’s mission to make Western New York a more equitable place to live.


Volunteers are essential to running our programs. Volunteering is a fun and meaningful way to support our students and entrepreneurs and give back to the community. We are currently seeking volunteers for our Education and Economic Development programs.
