Want to Volunteer? Want to Volunteer? We’re always looking for volunteers! Whether you have an hour per month or several afternoons per week, we have a way for you to contribute and get involved. The main opportunities we have available for volunteers are: • Helping out with our yearly NAMIWalk for mental illness awareness. Tasks include outreach, recruiting sponsors, team captains and walkers, soliciting donations, and volunteering on Walk Day. • Helping with periodic office tasks including: preparing mailings, entering member information into our database, assembling course binders, making photocopies, etc. • Facilitating a support group, teaching a class or becoming a presenter for a community education program. Our support and education programs are volunteer-run and we are always looking for more teachers, facilitators and presenters! Please review the programs to see which you might be interested in being trained to lead. Please note that you must have the relevant life experience in order to teach, facilitate or present (you must have been diagnosed with a mental illness to teach a Peer-to-Peer course, for example).
