What makes the MumNet organization of approximately 400 women with a limited staff so successful? Our volunteers!
Many members have used their volunteer work experience as an opportunity to build for future jobs and careers. The value of volunteering is a way of giving to a wonderful organization but also as a way of developing your skills and experience for the future.
There are volunteer positions within each group (helping groups to function each week) and organization-wide positions and opportunities which support the Board of Directors and city-wide initiatives.
