Wellspring Center for Prevention is seeking volunteers to serve on our Board of Trustees. We are interested in individuals who have ideas on ways to grow the organization and are not only qualified but excited about our mission and our effect on the communities we serve.
Our trustees need to know who we are and what we do. They need to advocate on our behalf within their own spheres of influence. By advocacy, we are not talking about formallobbying. Rather, we mean looking for natural opportunities to bring us up in conversation to spread the word about our mission. There is no management role, but we’re looking for people with skills and connections to bring to the table. The individual (s) we seek should have experience in the following sectors: Financial, Human resources, Governance (prior board experience), Public relations/marketing, Personal recovery, Philanthropy, Strategic planning, Professional networking, IT, Public speaking, and Research.
Specifically, we seek individuals with the following backgrounds or experiences: Faith communities, Corporate, Medical, Public schools, youth services, senior services, legal, real estate, law enforcement and the Rutgers University community.
Level of Commitment
Focused time is only 3-5 hours per month, which includes attending some of our programs and functions and a two-hour board meeting every two months.
Geography - We would prefer to hear from individuals who reside in either Middlesex, Somerset, Union, or Monmouth Counties.
