Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaiʻi. Your help and support is greatly needed and appreciated. There are a variety of ways you can get involved, from volunteering at special events to community outreach to office support. Please find below the different volunteer opportunities and the process on how to become a volunteer.
Community Outreach – Help get the word out in your community! Volunteers are needed to distribute materials about our programs and services to schools, hospitals, doctors’ offices, local stores and other community centers. In addition, volunteers will help staff community outreach events by passing out epilepsy information, informing event attendees about the organization and answering questions.
Office Support – Office volunteers help with a variety of office tasks including: answering the phone, greeting visitors, data entry, managing media database/press, mailings and general office administration.
Special Events – Volunteers assist with the organization’s annual Sharon’s Ride for Epilepsy and Freedom Run. Duties may include: registering participants, securing sponsors & in-kind donations, assisting with setup/breakdown, cheering on runners/bikers and helping with event logistics.
