Volunteers are valued members of our team!
Volunteers are a critical component of the New Opportunity School for Women’s mission. They are especially important as we look to expand our programming to meet ongoing needs within our region.
There are many opportunities to volunteer with NOSW, whether directly with our various programs or in supportive roles with our administrative and fundraising efforts. Our greatest need for volunteers is in preparation for, during and after our residential sessions, community-based sessions and fundraising event. But there are other ways to engage in ongoing support by serving on our Board of Directors and helping with recruitment.
Whether helping with our Graduate Reunion or supporting our core staff during our residential session, all assistance is valuable and greatly appreciated. Opportunities also include recruiting for programs, providing a meal during a session or prepping for a meal, coordinating thank-you notes, or helping with transportation.
This includes helping with office operations, grant writing, and thank-you notes.
This includes overseeing the health and sustainability of the organization and serving on various Board committees (Finance, Development, Personnel and Program).
Festival of Trees
Festival of Trees is NOSW’s major fundraising event. There are many opportunities to assist our Festival of Trees Coordinator with soliciting silent and live auction items, identifying entertainment possibilities, enlisting tree decorators, setting up the event, and helping during and after the event.
