Volunteer as an Advocate
Advocates are the heart of CHAP. As an Advocate, you serve as a friend to a participant. “Participant” is the term we use to refer to CHAP’s guests. You will spend about an hour per week helping your Participant define goals, prepare to work to again, or chat about life. Participants want someone to listen. Being an Advocate allows you to change a Participant’s life by taking the time to get know who they are.
Typical Advocate activities:
Share stories and spend time together
Meet weekly to discuss goals
Help your Participant find meaningful community and work-related activities
Drive your Participant to appointments
As an Advocate, you will come to know that CHAP’s guests are people just like you. It’s your friendship that will make all the difference.
