Board Members

EVOLVE seeks experienced, diverse, collaborative, and active Board Members who can partner with the Executive Director, Board Chair, and other Board Members to provide support and oversight in the delivery of our mission and vision. Activities include regular meeting attendance with active participation, contributing to the development of policies and strategic plans, ensuring the organization is in compliance with regulations, and evaluating/approving finances and high-level agency decisions. Ideal candidates will have experience in serving other boards, fundraising, and experience with non-profit management. A passion for or personal connection to the work in child welfare, adoption, or foster care is highly valued. This is an uncompensated volunteer position.

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. We are open from 9-4 Monday through Thursday and you may choose the day and time that works best for you.

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.

UMOJA MN Volunteers

Volunteer with UMOJA MN! The UMOJA MN Educational Team offers the unique opportunity to model, create, implement and deliver high-quality programming and excellent educational experiences based on African American culture and history to transracially adopted and foster youth in the MN community. Learn more.

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 Stillwater property.
