Volunteer Opportunities

We have a range of opportunities where having a volunteer to help us would make a significant difference. Opportunities include answering the Warm Line; preparing materials for a class; staffing a resource table at a Health Fair or being the NAMI presence at vital local county meetings, and more – all support is gratefully received and helps us expand out outreach and increase our offerings into the community.


While working with the office and board members, our computer savvy coordinator will:

  • Prepare projects as needed for office volunteers to work on
  • Maintain updated lists of current volunteers along with their interests, skills and availability
  • Support program teachers with volunteers for preparation of class materials
  • Provide new volunteer contact information to various coordinators
  • Support Special Events by recruiting volunteers for General Meetings, health fair/outreach events and the NAMI Walk
  • Assess individual skill levels and interests and tailor them to appropriate jobs.

To volunteer or for more information on volunteering, please call the office 650-638-0800, or email us nami@namisanmateo, and let us know what you like to do. I am confident we can find a volunteer opportunity that matches your interests and skills. Thank you, we look forward to connecting with you.
