Office Assistant: Most office volunteer opportunities occur around specialized projects and/or events. Although time commitment can vary, based on project length and deadlines, office volunteers can expect to invest 4 to 12 hours per month for maximum effectiveness. Flexibility in scheduling and the ability to work from home are a plus of these volunteer opportunities. Some examples include: data entry; mail assistance (stamping, sealing and addressing envelopes by hand; and filing/organizational tasks.
FDL Says No More Phase II Engagement of Men & Boys: We will look to engage men and high school boys in several focus groups designed to hear their perspectives on the topics of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse/neglect as a data collection method. A core group of focus group participants may then be asked to partner with Women’s Fund Board and staff, as well as agency reps from ASTOP, Solutions Center and Agnesian/SSM DV Program to determine best practices for engaging men and boys in changing attitudes and reducing violence toward women and children in Fond du Lac County.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Task Force: We hope to utilize the time, personal experiences and expertise of individuals who represent traditionally marginalized groups (people of color, indigenous people, LGBTQIA+ community) who can partner with Board members to examine the current state of the Women’s Fund diversity and inclusion efforts, develop a SWOT analysis of present-day fitness surrounding this topic and propose steps to move the agency forward in service to all women and girls.
