The NRC is staffed by trained health information professionals who can answer many of your questions about AD/HD and provide other helpful information and resources. (NOTE: the NRC does not provide legal or medical advice, but can offer ideas and suggestions to help you find what you are looking for).

Volunteer Opportunities:

CHADD Volunteers Empower their Communities

CHADD's dedicated volunteers play an integral part in the organization's success by providing support, education and encouragement to parents, educators and professionals on a grassroots level through CHADD affiliates.

Who should volunteer?

Our volunteers are people who have a strong desire to help their community, and feel comfortable sharing their personal experiences or knowledge about ADHD with others. If you have an interest in learning more about ADHD through volunteering this is the place for you!

Because you have visited this page, we know that you  want to learn more about how you can help and that you have something that you can offer. We can certainly use your assistance in providing support to those affected by ADHD. By volunteering for an existing affiliate, you can play an important part in helping us accomplish our mission.

While there are many volunteer opportunities, support group facilitators must be at least eighteen years old.

Check for a local CHADD Affiliate

The first step in volunteering is to locate a local CHADD affiliate through our affiliate locator. If there is an existing group, contact the coordinator and express your interest in volunteering. 

CHADD is currently not starting any new support groups through the national office at this time.  CHADD has issued a moratorium on the establishment of new support groups until August 2011.  We are currently accepting online requests for infomation.  Please complete our online form in order to receive information by mail about starting a CHADD group in July.

What do CHADD affiliates do?

Affiliates provide assistance in their community by providing information, resources and a place for people to communicate with each other based on their shared interest in ADHD. Meetings are typically held once per month and many groups take the summer off.

Volunteers may also provide informal support and information to members of the community by phone or e-mail.

What are the benefits?

The need is great and the rewards even greater. It is an opportunity to serve, grow, learn, make new friends, exchange ideas, and feel needed. You will have access to a wealth of information about ADHD and local community resources. Not only will you be providing others with support, but you will soon find others providing support and information to you.
