“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is ‘What are you doing for others?’” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Whatever your availability, skill set, or personal interests, Adoption Network Cleveland has a need that you could fill by becoming an Adoption Network Cleveland volunteer. Since our founding in 1988, volunteers have played a critical role in program development, advocacy, leadership, fundraising, organizational oversight, and direct service.
Some positions require a great deal of commitment, while others ask for a little more than a few hours of your time. What qualifies you to become an Adoption Network Cleveland Volunteer is a willingness to serve and support those individuals and communities whose lives have been touched by adoption and foster care.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, Adoption Network Cleveland programs and services are not meeting in person and will be offered virtually for the foreseeable future. Volunteer opportunities are limited to virtual opportunities, such as our Committees, which are meeting virtually, our Champions Volunteer program, and other virtual administrative project-based volunteering.
Serve on one of our Committees to the Board of Directors and provide your insight on finance, fundraising, leadership, public policy, programming and outreach.
