Description

Welcome to the MHAGC volunteer page!

Thank you for considering MHAGC; we are delighted that are you interested in learning more about us and what we do. Volunteers form the core of our organization. We believe that volunteers are front and central to our success as we work to expand our reach and realize our vision. Please see www.mhagcusa.org or call us for more information about us, our programs and/or services.

There are a number of steps involved in becoming volunteer:

1) Select a volunteer position!
2) After reviewing your request, we will reach out to you by email to begin the process. Please attach your resume.
3) If you are a good match for a position, you will be invited to come into the MHAGC office for an introductory meeting or to schedule a time to talk on the phone.
4) The volunteer packet will be presented, reviewed and signed. As some of our programs contain information and content that is proprietary, you may be asked to complete a confidentiality and conflict of interest agreement.
5) Volunteering can begin!

Please note: MHAGC volunteer positions focus on leadership, outreach, fundraising, and administration. Other than the support group roles (still in development) we cannot offer volunteer positions that have direct contact with individuals with mental illness or mental health related issues.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Must be at least 19
  • Orientation or Training
  • We are flexible on the time and will work with you of course! The only limitation is when foundations have a deadline that we must meet. Many of the documents required are developed but will need customization.
  • Once taking on a foundation must complete the application. I had one volunteer who stopped in the middle with a deadline looming. We need someone committed to finish at least the one they are working on & bringing us up to date before moving on.
