West Grand has a number of opportunities for you to get involved in the neighborhood! We host many work groups throughout the year, but also have specific ways you can get involved in an ongoing way. Below are some of those opportunities. If you or someone you know would be a good fit, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page and click “submit”. Thank you!
We are seeking a sociable, dedicated person to fill this important ongoing role at West Grand. We rely heavily on volunteers to accomplish much of the work we do. Managing volunteers takes time and work and has stretched our staff to their limits. We are looking for a part-time Coordinator willing to take on the task of scheduling, overseeing and following up with volunteers. We hope to be able to pay a stipend for this position.
Taste of Grand Rapids Volunteer Coordinator
The Taste of Grand Rapids is one of our biggest fundraising opportunities. West Grand lines up many of the volunteers that staff the 2 day event. We need someone to help make telephone calls, send out mailings and schedule volunteers. A small stipend may be available for this position.
Youth Programs Volunteer
We need a creative person who is passionate about working with neighborhood youth to head up the planning and implementation of summer youth programs. Time commitment and involvement is flexible, so let us know if you have ideas!
Adeline’s Promise Volunteer
This is a program that provides security and safety home improvements at NO COST to our senior neighbors. We have many dedicated volunteers who go out into the neighborhood to install new locks and lights, but we need a volunteer to help coordinate the different small projects going on in the community related to Adeline’s Promise.
Community Programs Volunteer
West Grand hosts or participates in a number of community events each year. We are always in need of volunteers to help with these events. A GREAT way to get started with WGNO.
For information on the other opportunities, please e-mail Nola in the West Grand office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
