SMART Recovery Volunteer Month 2016

Support SMART Recovery Volunteers!

Each April, SMART Recovery celebrates Volunteer Month as a way to not only recognize the efforts of our many dedicated volunteers, but also to encourage others to help meet the demand to bring SMART Recovery to others and to share in the rewarding experience of volunteering.

A number of Volunteer Month Training Scholarships are available during Volunteer Month to provide training for those who qualify for financial assistance to cover the cost of the SMART Recovery Facilitator and Support Team Distance Training (FAST).

Volunteer Month Training Scholarships are available for those looking to become local face-to-face and online facilitators, message board volunteers, chat volunteers, and other volunteers that may benefit from the SMART Recovery FAST training.*

Applications for Volunteer Month Training Scholarships will be accepted during the month of April. If you have been considering volunteering at SMART Recovery, now may be your time to get trained, get involved, and experience the rewards of helping others make a difference in their own lives.


VM FundraiserVolunteer Training & Scholarship Fund 2016

For Volunteer Month 2016 we have set a goal of 75 new applications for our Volunteer FAST Training. To fund scholarships for these new applicants we need to raise $5,625.

We are delighted to announce that we have received a new challenge from the SMART Recovery New England groups to help us reach our goal. They’ve pledged up to $1,500 to double Volunteer Month donations received during the remainder of April.

Double your impact! Donate today!

All funds raised in April for our Volunteer Month campaign will be used to provide training scholarships. Please give generously!
