Are you looking for a great experience that will enrich other people’s lives while providing you with deep personal satisfaction, personal growth and continued learning? We invite you to become a Bellwood volunteer.
As a Bellwood volunteer, you will be joining a dedicated group of individuals who regularly share their time, energy and experience with our staff members, clients and their families. Many of our volunteers are in recovery and find it rewarding to be involved in the work we do at Bellwood. They are proud to be role models for our clients, and work very hard to hold up the same beacon of hope that guided them through their own treatment program.
To be a Bellwood volunteer, you simply need to contact our coordinator of volunteers. Opportunities may exist in our marketing, research, administration, and IT departments, as well as the client and family programs.
If you are in recovery, you need:
- Three months of uninterrupted post-graduation sobriety if you were a Bellwood client
- One year of proven sobriety if you were not a Bellwood client
- A strong recovery program
- Willingness and honesty
Whether you are a Bellwood graduate, or a family member or individual with personal experience with addiction and recovery, we encourage you to volunteer at Bellwood. Please note that we require a minimum six month commitment and are not able to accommodate individuals seeking short-term volunteer positions.
I have been involved in several different roles as a volunteer at Bellwood for over four years, and have always found each of them to be very rewarding experiences. All of the staff members you work with are of very high quality and really care about the success of clients. The volunteer activities helped keep me grounded and focused on my own recovery. And it’s very gratifying when you help others with their treatment and recovery. I’m very grateful to Bellwood for providing me with this opportunity.
