Make a Difference: Volunteer
Houston NVC is an all volunteer organization passionately powered by a dedicated and relatively small group of volunteers. That is why, in addition to our jobs, kids and homes, we spend much of our free time working towards our dream of building a more compassionate Houston. In our efforts to be able to reach more people and offer additional trainings and resources, we would love support from anyone who shares our passion. If that is YOU, below you will find information about how you can contribute your time and skills. Thank you for caring about the well-being of others. And thanks for considering volunteering your time and skills to support our mission.
We Have Many Opportunities for You
Whether one time or on an ongoing basis, as part of a group or in the quiet of your own home, we have many opportunities for you. We will work with you to find one that matches your interest and time availability. With each of us contributing a little time, we can make a BIG impact. Below are some examples of available opportunities, and there are more! You can email us at info@HoustonNVC.org to learn more.
When we plan a workshop we need a small group to call around to different possible venues (we have an evolving list) to see if appropriate space is available on given dates and to secure the space selected.
When the workshop is set, we need a small creative team to make promotional materials, design flyers and get them printed, emailed and posted on our webpage and social media.
When promotional materials are ready, we need a team to develop and implement a communication strategy, contacting media, business and organizational contacts to get the word out.
Just before and during a workshop, we need a team to buy, prepare and monitor snacks and meals, assist with registration and book/material sales table.
Most of our ongoing work is organized around Committees or Circles, including: Training, Community Building, Finance, Volunteers and Facility. You can always start by getting involved with a committee. Let us know if you have a particular interest or skill that you would like to share (communications, fundraising, organization, etc).
By giving a few hours of your time, you would be supporting our core group of volunteers while enjoying the fun, camaraderie and shared purpose of this passionate group of people.
