All Bell volunteers must be capable of interacting with community members, agency staff and service users in a pleasant and professional manner. Sensitivity to challenges faced by individuals with mental, intellectual, and economic disability is essential.






Special Project Volunteer

This is a hands-on opportunity for a highly organized individual to collect and compile information for both a print and digital directory of the residential properties of Bell Socialization Services.

The volunteer will work most closely with the Community Engagement office, as well as the mental health, intellectual disability, and shelter services teams.  Requirements include reliable transportation to travel to locations to be photographed, and access to a camera or phone with capacity to take high-resolution photographs.   Flexible schedule.

Media Archivist

Working closely with the Community Engagement office, the Media Archivist will sort through historical and current media items (newspaper articles, etc.)  related to the agency, then organize items in both print and digital format to be maintained for educational and reference purposes.

This volunteer requires a highly organized individual with patience and a sense of detective-like adventure.
