Opportunities to Get Involved This Summer

With the summer here, there are many ways to get involved in community activities, and there are a number of great organizations in our district looking for volunteers.

If you’re looking for a way to pitch in, get to know your neighbors, get more active or try something new, please consider joining one of these local groups that help make our community a great place to live.

Bridgeport

Spanish interpreters are needed (especially Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, and Saturday mornings) at the AmeriCares Free Clinic, 115 Highland Ave., Bridgeport. You can make a difference by serving uninsured Connecticut residents. Interpreters help translate patient needs to physicians. The Bridgeport clinic has an ongoing need of interpreters for Tuesday and Thursday clinic sessions.

Mentors are needed for the LifeBridge Community Services Pathways Program, 475 Clinton Ave., Bridgeport. You can be a mentor to a Bridgeport youth who is currently or has been involved in the juvenile justice system or are at risk of becoming involved. The program works to provide youth with fundamental soft skill training, basic math and reading skills remediation, and mentorship from individuals working in justice or emergency fields. Volunteer mentors are needed to talk with youth in a classroom setting about their own career path and help encourage our youth to explore it.

Do you like to talk? Do you like to reminisce? The Jewish Senior Services Jewish Home for the Elderly, 4200 Park Ave., is looking for volunteers for their “Getting to Know You Groups.” The purpose of these groups is to create and facilitate connections and stimulate conversations between residents.

Trumbull

The Trumbull Youth Association is always looking for volunteers for their summer musicals. You can help with costumes, field day food coordination, lobby sales, lighting, painting, props, publicity, and more.

The Track Sports Clinic is looking for high school volunteers. Please contact Dan Gagne at dgagne@trumbull-ct.gov if interested in helping out.

The Trumbull Nature & Arts Center is run by volunteers. At TNAC, you can enjoy nature’s benefits and share them with others. If you or your company are interested in volunteering at TNAC, please send an email to patronsoftnac@gmail.com.

Monroe

Individuals interested in volunteering for the Town of Monroe are required to complete an application. The town is looking for volunteers to serve on boards and commissions, parent teacher organizations, and community and political organizations. A background check will be performed for all volunteer positions. Parent permission for minors (ages 13-18) is required.

To help out at the Monroe Food Pantry contact Food Pantry Coordinator Wendy Jolls at 203-452-2817.
