Volunteer With Us
St. Joseph County Right to Life would not be half the organization it is without its faithful team of volunteers! Interested in joining our crew of steadfast life defenders? We are always looking for more committed volunteers to captain projects, assist with our events, and help keep the office running smoothly. Whether you want to be on the front lines, just help in the office or anything in between, there is a way for everyone to get involved.
Here are some ways to get involved:
Church Liaison: Work with your church to provide pro-life information and news. JOBS INCLUDE: being a liaison at your church, contacting new churches, and sitting on the church outreach committee.
Community Education: One of the most important objectives of Right to Life is educating the public on pro-life issues. JOBS INCLUDE: public speaking in classrooms for the Life Team Presentations and apologetic workshops (training included), manning booths at the 4-H Fair and Mishawaka Heritage Fest, and phoning to set up speaking engagements.
Direct Action: Having a presence at the abortion business. Abortion workers have stated that the no-show rate can increase up to 75% when there are people praying outside the abortion business. JOBS INCLUDE: sidewalk counseling (training provided), legal picketing, and praying.
Fundraising: Funds are needed to continue our efforts in St. Joseph County. JOBS INCLUDE: helping to plan and organize the annual benefit dinner, assisting with the Mother's Day flower sale and January Signature Ad, and reaching out to sponsors and advertisers.
