Volunteer Opportunities

Our Needs

TASK’s greatest need is for support with client relations and community outreach. We want families who need our services to know who we are and how we can help. Once families have been served, we want to follow up with them to make sure they’re doing well. TASK can also use volunteer support with general office duties, special events and other activities.

Benefits of Volunteering

TASK volunteers make a difference in the lives of families with children with disabilities by offering emotional support, encouragement and a listening ear. Enjoy flexible hours, training and support in a positive environment.

OPPORTUNITIES

Resource Fairs
Help man the TASK booth at weekend resource fairs and share information about our services with the general public.

Parent-to-Parent Support
Call families we’ve served in the past and check-in with them.

TASK Presentations
Make presentations about TASK to community groups and partner agencies to help get the word out about TASK.

General Office Support
Help with filing, prepare workshop packets, and other general office duties.

Special Events and Other Activities
Help plan or support special events in the counties we serve and help out with other activities.

Serve on the TASK Board

Join the TASK Board

Board service is a volunteer experience that can have a huge impact on an organization and be very rewarding.  It is an opportunity to channel your knowledge, skills and passion towards a mission you believe in.

Board members act as an organization’s stewards and make decision on issues, policies and other matters involved with governance.  Half of TASK’s board also has a child with a disability.

Board responsibilities include:

  • Representing the organization and acting as a spokesperson
  • Attending board meetings, committee meetings, and special events
  • Making personal financial contributions
  • Actively participating in fundraising activities
  • Working with staff and other board members as partners towards achieving organizational goals
