NAMI Fox Valley volunteers help make the organization a valuable community resource.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for NAMI Fox Valley. NAMI Fox Valley volunteers are a critical part of bringing the agency’s mission to life.
The majority of NAMI Fox Valley's regular volunteer opportunities are for individuals who identify as living with mental illness or having a close family member who lives with mental illness. Volunteers use that lived experience help to facilitate support groups, teach educational programs, and participate in our speakers bureau, among other things. NOTE: To facilitate support groups or teach educational programs, you must be a previous or current participant in those programs.
There are also a limited number of volunteer needs that do not require lived experience. Most significantly, we rely on volunteers to help with NAMIWalks Fox Valley, our annual 5K fundraising walk that takes place each October. Volunteer opportunities also periodically arise for individuals interested in helping with administrative tasks such as mailings as well as building maintenance needs.
