Individual Volunteers

Make a difference in young lives.

One of the better-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. Helping out with even the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people that David & Margaret serves.

 

Mentors: We’re looking for positive, responsible and caring role models. 

 

Informal Internship Opportunities: Students are able to observe and participate in programs and services. 

 

Motivational Speakers: We are in need of professional businesswomen to speak to our girls about their careers and the path they took to get there. 

 

Recreation: Come teach or lead crafts or fitness activities to our girls in small groups. This would help to make their free time more enjoyable, therapeutic, and productive. Volunteers with special skills in areas such as music, yoga or martial arts are especially desired.

 

Ministry Aides: Members of different faiths are needed to provide transportation to and from their church/house of worship and give our girls the opportunity to participate in special activities such as youth ministry, confirmation, etc.

 

Recovery Sponsors: Adult women in recovery are needed to sponsor teenage girls in the process of becoming clean and sober. Sponsors help these girls by going with them to group meetings, providing ongoing one-on-one support, and helping them envision a future free of drugs and alcohol.

 

Marketing/PR & Fundraising Committees: Individuals with experience and/or interest in marketing, public relations or fundraising are needed to contribute their creative ideas, guidance and community connections.

 

Holiday Gifts: Help is needed to organize and wrap Christmas gifts from November through January. (Any gifts not given to clients for Christmas are used to stock a year-round birthday gift room.)

 

Clerical Aides: Persons with clerical skills are needed to help with filing, data entry, making copies and other general office duties.

 

Maintenance/Landscaping: There is an on-going need for volunteers to help our maintenance staff with painting, carpentry, gardening, and tree pruning.

 

The Store @ David & Margaret: Volunteers are needed to assist with the sorting, organizing and distribution of donated items in our non-profit store.
