Upcoming and Ongoing Service Opportunities:
Volunteer with the NAMI Wellness Project
The need is ongoing and the project is based in Needham, MA
The NAMI Wellness Project is a new nonprofit organization that can use your volunteering energy. We help adults living with depression, PTSD (which includes returning veterans), ADHD, major mental illness, addictions, anxiety and other brain challenges, by promoting the therapeutic value of exercise, nutrition and music.
How You Can Help: We have a large house that is to be our future headquarters, and is in need of renovation: PAINTING, CLEANING, SANDING, CARPENTRY, REFINISHING, and more. We usually work on Saturdays throughout the semester, 10am-3pm. There is plenty of work, and though we welcome students with carpentry and plumbing skills, it is not required; just be ready to get dirty! Small or large groups are welcome.
On Campus Help: We are looking for students to organize a collection day for old mp3 players and ipods; we give them away as fitness tools.
Ongoing Projects: We work straight through the semesters, and are available for individuals in need of community service time, as well as alternate Spring Break. We have flexibility in days/times. We are badly in need of individuals with specific skills: plumbing, tiling, carpentry, bike repair, as well as students interested in working on our television show (newtv.org/video/htbh).
