The Bridge Kicks Off Volunteer Program

Posted on 4/23/2010 by The Bridge

This week marks the 37th annual National Volunteer Week proclaimed by the White House in 1974. Since then every president as well as governor, mayor and other elected officials have supported and endorsed the week focused on volunteerism.

National Volunteer Week is about taking action and encouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the center of social change—discovering and actively demonstrating their collective power to foster positive transformation” states Points of Light Institute, a coordinating organization of the event.

On Tuesday, April 20th we held a Happy Hour at Red Sky that kicked off our volunteer program. Friends of our board and staff joined us to learn about upcoming volunteer opportunities at The Bridge. Even though times are tough, the demand to serve and support consumers in our community remains – and we need your help.

We welcome various skills and talents to work with either clients or staff. Some of the opportunities to volunteer with clients include gardening, resume writing, computer training, photography, and money management. We are also looking for volunteers to work with our staff in finance, human resources, fundraising/event planning, marketing and information technology. Volunteer opportunities are available in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens, 7 days a week including evenings, weekends and holidays. We will be holding a Volunteer Orientation at The Bridge on Wednesday, May 12 from 6:30 – 8:30pm where people can learn more about our volunteer program.
