Volunteers are critical to making sure that MADD Maryland’s efforts are successful across the state. The compassion and determination of our volunteers drives the organization and it is through their tireless efforts that we have accomplished so much.
MADD Maryland offers many volunteer opportunities whether you’re interested in volunteering a couple of times a year or a couple of times a week, there is a place for you at MADD. All volunteers receive training and serve an important role in making a difference in our community.
MADD’s ongoing, one-time and event specific volunteer opportunities include:
