Below you will find a list of volunteer opportunities that are typically available. If you find one of interest, complete the application form below.
Volunteer Opportunities Available
MFEE runs several events each year, and we are always looking for energetic organizers who can co-lead initiatives! We also need plenty of worker bees to help carry out tasks, so anyone interested in being involved in fun community-building events is encouraged to get involved.
Special Events Community Outreach
MFEE is looking for volunteers to support a few specific initiatives this year: America to Me town-wide conversations on issue of race and equity, Intergenerational Story Slam, Middle School Ballroom Dance, and Boosting Mindfulness in Montclair Public Schools.
We seek volunteers to serve as liaisons to our teachers and shepherd them through our grant process. Liaisons help teachers transform their ideas into viable grant proposals that fit within MFEE’s guidelines. We provide training to all of our liaisons!
Photographer / Videographer
We seek volunteers who can snap good photos and/or film and edit short films that highlight MFEE’s work and promote MFEE’s events. We invite novices, amateurs, and more-experienced volunteers - anyone with an iphone and a willingness to learn can create a decent short film for us!
Documenting Grants in Action
We seek volunteers to help us consistently document the work of our grantees in Montclair public schools. We’ll assign you to however many projects that you can cover, which typically involve a short time observing students in classrooms as they participate in one of the projects that we have funded. Volunteers will snap a few photos or some short video, possibly conduct a very brief on-the-spot interview with a student or two and/or the teacher and craft a brief social media post or write up that we upload to our website. We will train you and accompany you on your first assignments!
While MFEE has some staff capacity to lead marketing and communication efforts, we welcome additional volunteers with experience in these fields to suport our work. We welcome graphic designers, writers, people with social media marketing experience, and all-around creative thinkers to help us sustain creative marketing campaigns for our appeals and our events.
MFEE has some staff capacity to lead administrative work, but we welcome volunteers to help us complete data entry projects, mailings, ordering/processing of grant materials for our teacher grantees, among other tasks!
MFEE welcomes MHS students to help with a variety of projects, including data entry, grant material inventory/labeling, photography, and event support. Because our offices are located inside Montclair High, it's super easy and convenient to get those much-needed community service hours right after school!
