Interested in a Truly ENRICHING Volunteer or Intern Experience?

Then look no further!  Both Hinds' Feet Farm locations (Huntersville and Asheville) offer a one-of-a-kind truly rewarding opportunity for individuals who really want to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.  Our unique, member-driven, community-based program derives its strength and efficacy from creating, and engaging the power of the community - not just the community of members and staff, but also by engaging with you - members of the community-at-large.  Community Volunteers and Interns are an important and integral part of our program!

What do I need to volunteer?
    An open mind
    A generous spirit
    A willingness to share and participate
    ie: NO EXPERIENCE or special talents/skills necessary!

 

The Greatest Gift you can give as a volunteer is the gift of yourself and your time - you will be amazed at how eager our members are to make new friends and acquaintances! 

What do volunteers do?
   
That's up to you and the Program Director. 
    Volunteers can offer special skill and creative talents to lead groups activities, or just come and hang out and be a friend to someone on the program! Volunteers and Interns have lead groups like:

  • yoga
  • theater/improvisation
  • music therapy
  • spiritual discussions
  • arts & crafts
  • scrapbooking
  • photography
  • games
  • etc

 

    The sky is the limit when you tap into the combined creative energy of the program community!

If you are interested in volunteering, please download and print the following forms.   You should review them carefully and bring them with you on your first day of volunteering.  Please do not take offense to any of these - they are required by the State.

We also highly recommend that volunteers interested in learning more about Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Please visit www.nctbitraining.org.  This is an informative and short online course on TBI that was developed by the NC Department of Health and Human Services, the Brain Injury Association of NC, Project Star and Charlotte AHEC. You may also visit our LINKS page for additional resources.

Interested Volunteers and Interns should contact one of our Program Directors below to schedule your initial visit and explore and discuss your interests as a volunteer or intern.  We look forward to seeing you in the program!
