We periodically train a small group of special people to serve our mission – are you one of them? Do you support all end-of-life options? Want to learn and make a significant contribution in your community?
If you support our mission, identify with our organizational values, and have a passion to help others with issues surrounding death and dying, then becoming a volunteer with EOLONM may be a good match for you.
Let us hear from you and we’ll contact you when our next volunteer opportunities are available.
Public Outreach and Education Volunteers
Conducting public outreach and education is a significant part of meeting our mission at End of Life Options New Mexico. There are several types of volunteer positions that help us accomplish our public outreach and education objectives. Whether you are a skilled adult instructor with experience delivering educational presentations, or enjoy greeting and answering questions at conferences and trade shows, or can assist in translating written content into languages other than English (i.e. Spanish, Navajo) we can use your expertise to reach public groups in New Mexico.
Client Support Volunteers
Client Support Volunteers (CSV) provide education to clients and their loved ones regarding legal end-of-life options in New Mexico. CSV’s assist clients and their families with information about advance care planning, assist with negotiating the healthcare system, and may help them understand services and get proper referrals. This work may also include providing information on the Elizabeth Whitefield End-of-Life Options Act, voluntary stopping eating and drinking (VSED), hospice care, advance directives, bereavement services, etc.
New EOLONM Client Support Volunteers will be screened, trained and eventually able to assist clients and their families with these kinds of end-of-life issues. Although training, experience, and educational credentials in social work, clinical professions, care coordination or the like are desirable, CSV’s will function and be trained to be helpers and facilitators, not function as healthcare providers.
