This Saturday, January 19th, is the National Day of Service. President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are asking Americans to find an event and serve with others in their community. We hope you will use this National Day of Service to get in contact with your local MADD office to see how you can get more involved.
MADD’s wonderful volunteers help raise awareness about drunk driving and underage drinking, as well as provide the vital support to those victimized by drunk driving. There are so many different ways you can get involved.
Here are a few examples of the types of volunteer opportunities with MADD:
- Become a trained victim advocate and provide emotional support to drunk driving victims/survivors as well as guide them through the criminal justice system.
- Work with MADD’s public policy department to strengthen existing laws and enact new ones.
- Share your story at schools, civic groups, clubs and other organizations.
- Ensure that drunk driving offenders are punished to the fullest extent of the law by monitoring court cases and reporting outcomes to the community and media.
Whether you’re interested in volunteering a couple of times a year or a couple of times a week, there’s a place for you at MADD. And we have a wide variety of opportunities to match your interests and expertise.
President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have chosen to make Saturday a special day of service to highlight volunteerism in the country, and we hope that you will use this day to find your place as a MADD volunteer.
