As a community-based non-profit organization, LICADD relies heavily on volunteers in order to fulfill its mission and promise to Long Islanders touched by addiction. Volunteering is a great way to contribute to the well-being of your community, gain valuable experience and meet new people. We are currently putting together a database of those who are interested in helping out at various events throughout the year. If interested, your name and contact information will be added to our directory and when an opportunity arises, an email will be sent out. If you are available to volunteer, simply let us know and if not, we will keep you on the list for next time.
If you have four hours a month, please consider becoming a mentor to a young person in LICADD’s BUDDY program. We serve young people ages 4-18 who have an incarcerated parent or close family member. We are focused on enhancing the quality of life for these at-risk kids. Our mentors receive training and commit to working with one child, or “mentee,” for a minimum of one year. We’ll facilitate your introduction to your mentee and support the relationship every step of the way as you participate in group and individual activities and outings.
