NCVRC is seeking volunteers and peer recovery support workers to aid us in the important work we do as Lamoille County's recovery center.
Volunteers and peer support workers are an integral and valued part of fulfilling the overall mission and vision of the center and have the opportunity to help people from our community who are on a lifelong journey recovering from their addictions and co-occurring conditions.
Our mission is to provide a welcoming, safe, supportive and substance-free environment for individuals and families on their paths to lasting recovery. Our vision is to enrich the social lives of individuals, families, and communities who have been affected by addictions to alcohol and drugs. That being said, we also have offerings for people suffering from eating disorders, trying to quit smoking, and facing other challenges.
Volunteers can work in numerous and varied capacities. A few common roles are Front-End Guest Service Volunteers, Special Services and Skills Volunteers, and Operations Volunteers. But we are open to hearing what you could bring to the table and how we could make your volunteer experience enriching for you and the people we serve.
Although length of sobriety is not a final determining factor in volunteer roles, the length of sobriety will be one of the factors considered. Most of our volunteers are people who are sober and active members of a recovery community, or people who have at least six months of sobriety. We do have volunteers who do not personally have a history with addiction as well. The requirement for non-recovery individuals is a desire to give back to their community and that the individual has a basic understanding of the issues around addiction recovery.
There is an application and interview process to determine whether each person and the center are a good fit.
