Events/Office Opportunities


Events are a key way we raise funds and visibility for the Center's services. Helping with these events includes projects leading up to and during events. The list is endless! Some of our major events include the Auction & Dinner Gala, TD Beach to Beacon, our Golf Tournament and running events throughout the year.


General support is always needed, from helping with mailings, data entry, filing, organizing group rooms or closets, and working on special projects. We have a use for any time or skill you would like to contribute. If you have a special gift, such as art, marketing, graphic design, or fundraising, please let us know! Some volunteers will even organize small fundraising events (click here for ideas). Fun ideas are always welcome!


We are always looking for new board members with various areas of expertise (i.e., marketing, fundraising, governance, accounting, and program development). The Center has a hard working Board with members participating on Committees and special projects.

To learn more about volunteering in the office, for events or on the board please contact the Center at 207.775.5216 or email us at


Volunteers are needed in Southern Maine to assist with getting the word out about programming and securing community support. Please email us if you would like more information please email Beth at
