We couldn’t do what we do without YOU! Want to become more involved? Check out the opportunities below.
Board Committees (Finance, Governance, Philanthropy, Programs)
Are you interested in an ongoing volunteer role? Our board committees welcome community members to serve for one-year terms with a time commitment of approximately 2-4 hours per month. Board committees are made up of board members, community volunteers, and have a staff point person.
Learn about nonprofits from the inside! Our departments need general office support from volunteers able to work a set schedule (to be determined between the department and the volunteer) with a minimum commitment of 6 months or two college quarters.
Youth Programs Chapter Meals
Are you a great cook? A whiz with takeout menus? Bring a meal to a Chapter meeting for our youth advocates!
Every month, young people from the Mockingbird Youth Network meet in regional Chapters to learn leadership skills, brainstorm policy reforms, and plan for presentations and trainings. At each meeting, the young people share a meal together to facilitate bonding and a sense of normalcy they may not be able to find elsewhere.
Whether it’s homemade or takeout, our young people comment on how their meals are highlights for them. This is a great team-building or employee engagement opportunity. Volunteers coordinate a meal for approximately 15 people to be delivered on disposable serving platters (we have the silverware and plates!). The Chapter’s Engagement Specialist can provide suggestions for meal ideas if needed, as well as information about whether a vegetarian or other option is needed. Volunteers drop off the meal 30 minutes prior to the meeting and youth advocates on the Chapter’s Leadership Team are there to greet the volunteers and to tell them about current issues they are working on.
MOCKINGBIRD FAMILYTM Constellation Meals
At Mockingbird, we firmly embrace the power of a shared meal. Another way to volunteer is to bring a meal to a monthly Constellation meeting!
Each month, Mockingbird Hub Homes organize a Constellation Meeting which includes 6 to 10 families plus the Hub Home provider. The Hub Home typically provides a meal for all the families and the foster and biological children within the Constellation.
Volunteers coordinate a meal for approximately 26 people – typically 14-16 adults and 10-14 children of various ages. Please consider kid-friendly as well as adult food options. We will put you in touch with the Hub Home provider to coordinate the menu and delivery of the meal.
