About

The Fellside house is a part of Gould Farm, a therapeutic community located in the Berkshires that serves people with mental health challenges. Fellside is a transitional program that provides both residential and non-residential services in Medford and the Boston area. As a part of the team, you will have a chance to be a part of a progressive mental health recovery program that values community living and holistic healing. Some of our residential volunteers have an interest in eventually pursuing a post graduate degree in social work, psychiatry, or other related fields. This position provides an opportunity to gain important experience that provides a context for future studies in this field.

Volunteers support clients in acquiring life skills that will help them transition towards independent living. Working alongside residents, volunteers contribute their strengths to the Fellside community through wellness and life skills coaching, cooking, arts and crafts, music, yoga, fitness, gardening, administration, and more. Volunteers generally commit to a one year assignment and receive room and board (shared apartment, utilities, food, and parking), full medical insurance, and a bi-weekly
stipend.
