Volunteer for Manavi
Ever thought of volunteering for
a good cause?
Manavi is a New Jersey based, non-profit
organization working on issues of violence against South Asian
women. We provide services to women who have experienced violence
in their lives as well as work in the community to bring about
social change. Some of our programs include - advocacy/peer
supportive counseling, legal clinics and legal referrals,
transitional housing, support groups, outreach and education,
fundraising and grantwriting. Both Manavi staff and volunteers
contribute to the daily functioning of Manavi.
Some Manavi programs/activities that you
can volunteer for are as follows:
- Supportive Counseling/Advocacy
(Volunteers interested in supportive counseling must
complete a separate Advocacy Training)
- Transitional Home, Ashiana
(Volunteers interested in volunteering for the transitional
home must complete separate Ashiana Training)
- Outreach/Community Events
- Office Support
Manavi requires prospective volunteers
to attend a mandatory orientation program before they start
volunteering. The orientation session is held twice
a year and it gives participants an opportunity to learn about
Manavi's philosophy and values, apart from giving them
a detailed idea about Manavi programs.
Next Orientation Session: August
2012 (Date TBD)
We constantly invest our energies
into maintaining and improving Manavi's volunteer program,
in order for it to function effectively. Towards the same
end, we expect a level of commitment from our volunteers as
well. In addition to assigned duties, we expect volunteers
to attend program meetings as often as possible. Program
meetings are generally held on a monthly basis, at the Manavi
office, during weekday evenings and weekends.
We hope that volunteering with Manavi
will be a fulfilling and enriching experience for you! If
you have any questions regarding volunteering, please contatct
