Volunteers Needed

August 23, 2015 at 8:22 PM | Posted in Volunteers | 1 Comment

LCNV is so grateful to our dedicated corps of volunteers to help us advance our mission. Whether you are an active volunteer or still on the fence about whether or not to volunteer with us, please read on to learn about more ways to get involved.

Outreach Volunteers:
We are looking for volunteers to contribute to our student, volunteer, and public relations efforts. Outreach volunteer options include:

  • Manning an LCNV table at various events, such as at festivals sponsored by community centers and Back to School Resource Fairs.
  • Posting flyers for volunteer/student recruitment and for general promotion at targeted locations, including libraries, supermarkets, and community centers.
  • Representing LCNV as a speaker at various donor or volunteer outreach activities. Examples include:
    • LCNV Volunteer Orientation, where you would talk about your volunteer experience, and maybe even bring a learner you work with along;
    • Foreign Service Institute Job Search program Volunteer Fair;
    • RSVP volunteer meet & greet where prospective volunteers meet with representatives of service organizations.

For our student recruitment efforts in particular, we would like to have volunteers who are interested in using their skills with other languages, in order to ease communication between prospective students and the LCNV representative.

Current volunteers interested in serving in this capacity are asked to please contact Ruba Afzal and indicate the opportunities that appeal to you. If you are not yet a volunteer, please attend one of our upcoming Volunteer Orientations to get started.

Join LCNV’s Instructor Training Team:
If you have experience delivering instruction or training, and credentials in education, please consider joining the LCNV volunteer Training Team. This collaborative group of professionals trains LCNV volunteers to be teachers, class aides, and tutors for our learners. Interested individuals should be available a few Saturdays a year to participate in group training sessions and attend meetings. If you are a current volunteer and would like to find out more, please contact Carole Bausell. Otherwise, please attend one of our upcoming Volunteer Orientations to get started.
