Find Help, Find Hope!

Volunteer

NAMI Greater Corpus Christi needs YOU!

NAMI’s mission has been shaped and supported by its grassroots volunteers since the beginning.  NAMI volunteers are crucial to the success of our NAMI Greater Corpus Christi Affiliate.


Types of Volunteer Opportunities
All our education and support programs are led by volunteers, so we have several ways to get involved!


Teachers
Learning together is powerful. Use your experience navigating mental health challenges to help others in their journey in a structured, group environment.

This opportunity is right for you if:

  • you like to provide information through a standard curriculum to those who need information, education and support.
  • you want to use your lived experience as someone with a mental health condition or family/friend of someone who has a mental health condition to relate to the material.
  • you can commit to teaching for 6 or 8 consecutive weeks on the same day.
  • you can attend a 2-day training on a weekend.

Facilitators
There is strength in the support of a community. Use your experience navigating mental health conditions to facilitate positive and healing conversations.

This opportunity is right for you if:

  • you like to support others with their immediate issues each time you meet.
  • you want to use your lived experience as a person with a mental health condition or family member/friend of someone who has a mental health condition to demonstrate our principles of support.
  • you can commit to facilitating once or twice a month on the same day for 90 minutes.
  • you can attend a 2-day training on the weekend.

Presenters
Storytelling builds connection and empathy. Use your story of navigating mental health conditions by sharing your personal story in the community.

This opportunity is right for you if:

  • you like to present material to large and/or small groups.
  • you want to use your lived experience as a person with a mental health condition or family member/friend of someone who has a mental health condition to educate and inspire.
  • you are comfortable in settings with teens, parents, workplaces, faith communities or community gatherings.

Office Volunteers
It’s the small tasks behind the scenes that make programs successful. Help with the day-to-day needs of the organization.

This opportunity is right for you if:

  • you like to provide help behind the scenes with tasks such as preparing materials, entering data, and other support functions.
  • you can commit to four hours a week for at least 6 months with day time availability.

Event Assistants
Change the mental health conversation with education, awareness and fundraising events throughout the year.

This opportunity is right for you if:

  • you like to greet guests, provide hospitality and help with event setup and clean up.
  • you have evening and weekend availability.

Professional Services
NAMI Greater Corpus Christi leaders are pretty smart, but we don’t know everything. Your expertise or passion could be the strength we are missing.

If you have professional skills such as marketing, photography, graphic or floral design, Salesforce Administration, or project management, let us know and we may have opportunities for you!
