Volunteer Opportunities

 

Drop-In Center Volunteer Opportunities

 

All volunteer opportunities at the Drop-In Center require fulfillment of standard client-service volunteer protocol as explained on our website (novahti.com/volunteer-needs).

 

Mentoring – Participate in scheduled classes and activities with clients occurring at the center with a desire to build a sense of community around our clients. In order to establish relationships with our clients and those walking through our doors, a Mentor must commit to attend a minimum of one class a week.

 

Enrichment – Opportunities in the area of employment enrichment include job counselors to work one-on-one with clients to assist with job searches, resume reviews, and interview practice.  Volunteers are also needed to lead job and life skills workshops and classes such as financial management, computer skills, and even hobbies such as knitting, photography, and guitar. We are also seeking interpreters and translators for a variety of languages.

 

Kid’s Time Attendant – Kid’s Time provides a creative outlet for children while their mother attends classes designed to steer them in the direction of self-sufficiency. Kid’s Time volunteers provide community support with crafts, movie nights, games, outdoor time, and more.

 

Donation Room Attendant - As a Donation Room volunteer, you will log and unpack new donations of hygiene items, clothing, emergency needs, refreshments, and so forth as well as stock and organize shelves. This is a great way to work behind the scenes and on your own!

 

Administration– NOVA-HTI utilizes administrative volunteers to provide assistance to our ever-busy staff. Some tasks may include data entry, filing, mailings, informational packet construction, and many other special projects.

 

Collect Donations – NOVA-HTI relies heavily on donations to further our efforts to end human trafficking in Northern Virginia. You can support our mission by collecting items at work, school, your place of worship, or in your neighborhood.
