So Much to Do!
If you are an adult over the age of 21 and you would like to help with CiViL Groups, we may have a place for you! Read through the list of opportunities below. There’s bound to be something you can do. If you don’t see yourself, and you have an idea how you can get involved, please contact us. You may have the best idea yet!
Group Facilitators and Co-facilitators – Lead one or more CiViL Groups under the supervision of our staff. Training is required, and a full year’s commitment is required.
Solo Mentors – Meet regularly with a student to build a supportive relationship. Some training is required and you must be available for at least one hour a week for a full year. The schedule is flexible.
Service Project Advisers – If you have construction and repair skills, we need you on our service projects! Our service projects involve every kind of building and repair including framing, plumbing, electrical, drywall, roofing, painting, appliance installation, and landscaping. The only other requirement is that you love students!
Service Project Chaperones – We need adults to join us on projects. You might have to drive a van and sleep in a dorm, but it’s worth it.
Cookout & Party Hosts – Host a group of CiViL Groups students and leaders at your home for a one to three hour event.
Volunteer Coordinator – Help the CiViL Groups staff manage communication and supervision of volunteers.
Fundraising Event Volunteers – Several time a year we need help with fundraising events. This can include event planning, food donations, decoration, and more.
Special Project Coordinators – Organize special projects that involve CiViL Groups students in worthwhile activities. For example:
“CiViL Writes” Coordinator – Use your writing and/or graphic design skills to help students edit and publish a journal of their own creative writing.
Guest Speakers – Students need your experience and expertise. Teachers love to have credible guest speakers in their classrooms. If you would like to speak to a class, we can find a place for you.
Committees – CiViL Groups and our parent company, Touchstone Youth Resource Services, are searching for energetic volunteers to fill positions on various administrative committees.
