With the support of our Volunteers, MADD Maryland offers many community opportunities for engaging with us to make a difference in our community.
MADD Maryland’s ongoing, community opportunities include:
Power of Parents: Invite a trained facilitator to share MADD’s Power of Parents, It’s Your Influence™ program. These free 50-minute workshops offer parents and caregivers helpful information and a parent handbook that provides them with tips and conversational tools to talk with their teens about alcohol use.
Speakers’ Bureau: This volunteer staffed program offers dynamic speakers to adult audiences throughout Maryland. These speakers are trained to discuss the effects and impact of drinking and driving, and underage drinking, and to discuss MADD to groups of all sizes and ages. Our speakers are often family members of victims of drunk driving crashes or victims themselves who share their personal story as a way to help others understand the impact of drunk driving on a personal level.
Please note that our speaker’s bureau is not available to youth audiences. Best practices recommend that the most effective youth programs are those that engage young people over multiple sessions. Thus, we strongly encourage our community partners to consider educating youth by engaging with us on MADD’s Power of Parents, It’s Your Influence™ program.
Health Fairs: MADD Maryland can provide limited quantities of victim services educational materials for distribution at your event. You may also request to have a MADD volunteer on hand as well. Please note that MADD’s ability to send individuals to attend health fairs is subject to volunteer availability. Volunteers may not be available to meet every request.
To request MADD support through one of our community opportunities, please submit the completed Community Opportunity Request form by clicking here a minimum of four weeks (and no more than three months) before your event. Once your form has been received, we will contact you to discuss further details.
