Job Summary

Volunteers are vital to The Retreat. As a member of the Volunteer Committee, you will help us reach more individuals in our community and create innovative ways for more volunteers to assist us in our work.


The Volunteer Committee, which includes both staff members from The Retreat and non-staff volunteers, meets monthly. Committee members work independently on projects and collaboratively with individual staff members to help meet the needs of individual departments. Volunteer needs can change depending on the time of year and program objectives. The Committee will work to assess the needs of the organization and create new ways to reach potential volunteers.
