AINC has a NEW volunteer position open to people with excellent communication, record keeping, and documentation skills, who are interested in one on one assignment to individuals using our services for the blind, visually impaired and print disabled.

All persons seeking to be a AINC Buddy will need to pass a comprehensive background check which we will administer.

Volunteers that have passed the background check will be assigned between 1-4 AINC subscribers. The volunteer will need to contact the subscriber based on a schedule set and discussed at orientation. The volunteer will need to ask a series of questions, which will be provided, and keep records of frequency of contact, program preferences, and other information as requested.

Volunteers will be trained in confidentially compliance, and ways to ask leading, and engaging questions designed to enable AINC to provide the best service to each of our subscribers.

This is an ongoing volunteer opportunity, without a designated end point. Time commitment is between 2 and 4 hours per month. We are looking at forming advocacy relationships of trust, and communication, with an at risk population, so we are looking for volunteers that are committed for at least a year minimum.
