Volunteers are an important and valued extension of the LifeBridge Community Services (LifeBridge) staff and perform a wide variety of work essential to the Agency. Volunteers serve as LifeBridge ambassadors and partner with us to provide services to our clients.
There are many ways you can make a difference in your community; we are always looking for people with various backgrounds, talents, and skill levels and we offer both long- and short-term opportunities. We invite you to visit this site often for the latest volunteer postings in all program and administrative areas.
If you feel you’re a good fit for a volunteer position with us, complete and submit the LifeBridge Volunteer Application to volunteer@LifeBridgeCT.org. Resume and cover letters are welcome. If you are interested in learning more or have questions about any of our opportunities listed below, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@LifeBridgeCT.org or 203-368-5582.
Background verifications will be completed on all volunteers.
Group and Corporate Volunteer Opportunities
If your organization is interested in exploring a one-time volunteer opportunity or an ongoing volunteer relationship we look forward to working with you. Contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@LifeBridgeCT.org or 203-368-5582 to discuss the different options.
Court Mandated Community Service
LifeBridge accepts applications from individuals with court mandated community service. In order to process your application we need a copy of the paperwork from your court or your attorney stating the charges for which you are completing mandated service and the total number of hours required. We will also need to contact at least three references and will run a complete background clearance. LifeBridge will pay for the cost of running a clearance in Connecticut. If an out of state clearance check is required to process your application for mandated service, you will be asked to cover the cost of those additional clearances. We will review your charges and completed application to determine if you are a good match to complete your mandated hours at LifeBridge.
Guest speakers are needed in several different program areas to present information on a variety of topics including purchasing insurance, personal and investment banking, starting a business, conducting a job search, opening a bank account, understanding your credit score, and more. If you have a specialized knowledge in any of these areas, contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@LifeBridgeCT.org or 203-368-5582 to discuss making a presentation to our clients.
