For more information and to find which positions are currently available, you can contact our
volunteer@Seattle-Al-Anon.org or call the AIS office at (206)
Forms for AIS Volunteers
Have the AIS office number forwarded to your home or cell phone for a few hours at a
time. Help callers find meetings, and answer questions about
Al-Anon. Refer callers to phone numbers of outside organizations such
as AA when needed. Connect callers who need to talk longer with
members willing to make 12th step calls.
12th Step Caller
Call people who have given their name and number to a phone volunteer, and share your
experience, strength, and hope with them while encouraging them to try
our program. If you are fluent in a foreign language, you can also be
available for callers who speak that language.
Come to the AIS office in downtown Seattle for half a day. Answer the phone, sell
literature, and help with various clerical tasks. Many Metro buses
stop right in front of the office, and bus fare is reimbursed.
Parking is also located nearby.
Spend a few hours per month scheduling other volunteers to answer the AIS
phone after office hours. The entire job can be done from home via phone or email.
Each scheduler is responsible for one day of the week, and each day contains
four to six phone shifts.
Schedule volunteers for the AIS office on weekdays. Two volunteers are scheduled per
day. Attend the office committee meeting at the AIS office once a month
Emergency Phone Contact
Be available a good amount of the time to take very occasional calls from volunteers who have
a problem and are unable to reach their scheduler and volunteer coordinator. Talk them
through such tasks as changing or canceling phone forwarding.
Off-Site Office Helper
Performs clerical tasks such a typing and preparing mailings at any convenient time and location.
