Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are the spirit and strength of VOICE! It is their genuine commitment and dedication that facilitates the ongoing growth and development of VOICE’s key programs: Parent Support, Advocacy, Auditory-Verbal Therapy and Public Education.

Every contribution, from a single phone call to weekly participation, is valued and appreciated by VOICE for deaf and hard of hearing children. Together we give deaf and hard of hearing children a VOICE for life!

Some ways in which you could help include: Joining event or program committees, data entry, returning calls or emails, maintenance of resource library, photocopying, support with large mailings to members, event promotion, fundraising, on-site assistance at events, and more.

If you are interested in a volunteer role, please contact the National Office
at admin@voicefordeafkids.com to further discuss opportunities.
