Contact Us to Get Involved
If you have a passion for adoption, love to give back to the local community, and you are interested in joining the Adoption Options team on a volunteer basis, you may be just who we're looking for. We have volunteer opportunities throughout the year, and we'd love to hear from you!
Below are brief descriptions of a few positions where our passionate volunteers work hard and make a huge impact on the work we're doing.
BOARD MEMBER FOR ADOPTION OPTIONS/ARISE BOARD MANAGERS
The Board will support the work of Adoption Options/ARISE Adoption Academy and provide mission-based leadership and strategic governance. While day-to-day operations are led by Adoption Options' executive director (ED), the Board-ED relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the Board is both critical and expected.
This is an extraordinary opportunity for an individual who is passionate about the mission and who has a track record of board leadership. Selected Board Members will have achieved leadership stature in business, government, philanthropy, or the nonprofit sector. His/her accomplishments will allow him/her to attract other well-qualified, high-performing Board Members.
Board Members responsibilities include many tasks that provide invaluable leadership, governance, and oversight to the Executive Director and the agency.

Voluntary members of our event or fundraising committees play an important role in the success of the agency. Committee members are chosen based on current openings and identified talents and interest. The role may include attending meetings and events, interacting with Adoption Options supporters and staff, as well as planning and assisting in the execution of events.
Contact us to discuss committees with current openings where you may be a good fit or to learn more!
EXPERT SPEAKERS (for Trainings)
Are you an adoptee, birth parent, or adoptive parent looking to contribute to the agency? If so, this may be an ideal opportunity for you. We are always looking for members of the adoption triad to share their stories on a panel in one of our training courses. New adoptive parents truly appreciate hearing about the diversity of adoption experiences. We are also looking to expand our list of physicians available to speak in our training course on the topic of medical issues in adoption. Speaking as a member of a panel takes only an hour or so, a few times per year.

If you have a passion for adoption and talents in a variety of organization or general administrative tasks, we would love to chat with you about opportunities helping around the Adoption Options offices. Throughout the year we have a wide range of projects that could benefit from the help of community volunteers.
