Volunteers play a significant role in any nonprofit organization. The volunteers at EVOLVE are no different!
If you are considering volunteering with EVOLVE, take a look at the categories below and see if something sparks your interest. If so, fill out the form and we’ll be in touch!
Every month we send birthday packets to children in our system who are turning 5, 10 or 15 years old. We are in need of a volunteer or two to put together the birthday packets and prepare them for mailing. The envelope will include a birthday card, age appropriate information for the parents as well as a small gift for the child. The time commitment is once a month for about 2-3 hours. We are open from 9-4 Monday through Thursday and you may choose the day and time that works best for you.
Follow this link to an Evolve Adoption & Family Services newsletter with an article about the longtime volunteers that had been doing our birthday packets.
Administrative Support Volunteers
Our Administrative Support Volunteers are passionate about everything related to the office! They are the scan-masters, database-champions, and filing-extraordinaires. If organizing, computer logging, and sorting are your thing, then we have a spot for you! These volunteers provide essential support to our administrative staff in the day in, day out work. They have also been known to work on birthday packets and life-books for our adopted / foster youth.
Community Action Volunteers
Want to spread our mission into the community? Our Community Action Volunteers are the hands and feet of EVOLVE in the public. They partner with our staff at booth shows and community outreach events, helping be the “voice” of the agency. They are also the ambassadors of the agency in their own communities, distributing pamphlets and agency materials to local coffee shops, churches, and other public posting venues. These volunteers have also been known to be guest bloggers, social media assistants, and event seekers.
Development & Event Volunteers
Do you dream of being on a party-planning committee? Our Event Coordinator Volunteers assist with our annual fundraising events. We have two main events: a golf tournament / banquet early in the summer and a fall event in late October or early November. Volunteers help by organizing the event on our development committees, helping us get sponsors and participants, and assisting with set up or tear down day-of.
Handy Help and Grounds-keeping Volunteers
We’re searching for people with green thumbs, a knack for fixing things, and general upkeep help. In the spring and summer, we’re always looking for those who can devote a little time to weeding, planting, mulching, and mowing. Year-round, it’s always nice to have an on-call handyman to help us with general maintenance of our properties.
