Volunteers can have a tremendous impact
In 2009, 85 individual volunteers and 31 groups gave over 1,800 hours of service to Sarah’s Circle. Volunteers bring extra life and joy to the space of Sarah’s Circle. We extend a generous thank you to these caring individuals!
Each volunteer who comes to Sarah’s Circle arrives with a set of skills and experiences to offer as well as specific volunteer interests and goals of their own. At Sarah’s Circle, each volunteer works with the Volunteer Coordinator to create a position that is of mutual benefit to our agency, the clients, as well as the volunteer. We not only welcome, but encourage volunteers to think creatively as to how they would like to contribute.
Below are current volunteer positions at Sarah’s Circle:
Front Desk Volunteer
Assist program staff to meet the needs of the clients: help greet women, answer phones, give out and replenish toiletries, distribute and organize mail, and oversee computer and phone use.
Contribute to Sarah’s Circle's Educational and General Interest Programming by leading workshops. In the past, volunteers have led yoga, writing, poetry, arts & craft, and bingo workshops. Currently, we are looking for volunteers to lead weekend workshops on these topics: job searching, computer skills, nutrition, and self-defense. Of course, we are also open to new and additional ideas!
Provide important support and company to the women at Sarah's Circle. Volunteers have the opportunity to engage and socialize directly with the women. Engagement volunteers also help clients improve their resumes and search for jobs online.
