At the peak of the program, it is estimated that AOL had approximately 14,000 volunteers, Community Leaders had a wide variety of responsibilities, ranging from hosting chat rooms, monitoring message boards and file libraries, providing customer service, teaching online classes, and particularly creating and managing forum content.
However, toward the end of the program, Community Leader duties were generally restricted to monitoring chat and message boards.

Although at times controversial, the Community Leader program arguably played a substantial role in the rapid growth and success of the America Online service in the mid-1990s.
Because they were usually recruited from the more active users of a particular online forum, Community Leaders were often very passionate about the area for which they volunteered their time.
Along with the DOL investigation, and with less need for well managed communities, and with membership in serious decline, AOL decided to terminate its volunteer program.
In late May 2005, AOL informed its Community Leaders that they would be released from their positions on June 8 of that year.
The AOL Community Leader Program or AOL CLP was the official name for the large group of America Online online service volunteers who moderated chat rooms, message boards, and download libraries.It also provided oversight with respect to forum content by knowledgeable individuals.In May 1999, Kelly Hallisey and Brian Williams, two former Community Leaders, filed a class action lawsuit against AOL, claiming that AOL volunteers performed work equivalent to employees and thus should be compensated according to the Fair Labor Standards Act.The Department of Labor investigation, which, at least in part prompted AOL to limit Community Leader responsibilities, caused issues for the company.
Without unpaid volunteers, the company would have to hire employees to manage and post online content and run effective online communities previously done by Community Leaders.
In exchange for their services, AOL provided free service to their volunteers.
