Become a Volunteer

Why Volunteer?

Volunteers make important economic and social contributions to New View Society and its members. While volunteering you will be helping to create a welcoming environment for members to come to during their recovery. Volunteers help in a wide range of positions from reception, to educational programs, to program assistance or the creation and leadership of an entirely new program! We work hard to match the available opportunities to your talent and availability, and there is always a need for a variety of skills and experiences.
