Until further notice, due to COVID-19, we will not be accepting new volunteer applications. Please continue to check back with this website for when applications re-open.
Thank you for understanding. Any questions can be answered by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our volunteer program provides a unique opportunity for clients and the general public to enhance the services offered through CMHA. Volunteers are an integral part of CMHA and support the Branch in a variety of areas.
- Volunteers are required to fill out an application, attend an interview, provide two references and complete an orientation package.
- A suitable placement will be determined by both the volunteer and the Volunteer Coordinator.
- Due to the high volume of applications that we received and limited number of volunteer positions, we are not able to place everyone who applies.
- Due to the complex application process, we ask volunteers to commit to volunteering for a minimum of 4-6 months
Volunteers are needed to support clients by providing dependable transportation to and from their homes to appointments and/or groups. Volunteer drivers must be 21 years of age or older and have minimum 5 years driving experience. Travel is primarily throughout Oxford County, with the possibility of leaving the county. Provide agency with valid license, and insurance that shows two million dollar liability, submit monthly paperwork of volunteer hours contributed and mileage expenses, if it applies. Drivers using their own vehicles will be reimbursed for mileage.
Volunteers are needed for the planning/organizing for events and attending on the day of the event itself. Tasks may include helping to set up, take down, run a booth or support an activity, be a runner to bring supplies to those who need them. Volunteers may also be asked to help advertise our events (design posters and tickets), place posters, sell tickets, use social media, phone calls and bulletins to local organizations and businesses.
