SMRC Board Member Application
Board members help ensure fulfillment of the organization's mission through active engagement in supporting SMRC staff and volunteers. Eligibility for membership: Application for membership shall be open to anyone who supports the Mission Statement and Recovery Bill of Rights. For more info, click here.
Our core mission is to mobilize resources within and outside the recovery community to increase long-term recovery from alcohol and drug addictions. The recovery community includes people in recovery, their families and friends, allies and organizations whose members reflect religious, spiritual and secular pathways to recovery. There are many pathways to recovery, and like a bridge, we provide safe passage from one place to another. Our goals are to increase quality and quantity of support for those dealing with addiction and recovery.
We are a volunteer based organization; the volunteers create and run the programs. We have immediate volunteer opportunities available and trained specialized opportunities at the Southern Minnesota Recovery Connection. Immediate opportunities exist for activity planning, office work, research, grant writing, public speaking, etc.. We also have trainings available for Telephone Support Service and Recovery Coaching. Please note a background check may be required for certain positions.
Trained volunteers will call a person in recovery once a week to “check in” and help the person maintain recovery. Volunteers will have opportunity to intervene early to re-stabilize recovery following lapse/relapse episodes. Volunteers will be matched by clients preferences (drug of choice, gender, age, professional) which fosters a feeling of belonging and a sense of caring in the community. This relationship benefits the volunteers by strengthening their own recovery, provides a way to “give back” and builds a sense of community. The Recoverees benefit by getting a personal call to check on their recovery, social support and connection to the resources they need.

A Recovery Coach is anyone interested in promoting recovery by removing barriers and obstacles to recovery and serving as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking or already in recovery. Designed and delivered by people who have experienced addiction/alcoholism and recovery, this program effectively extends the reach of treatment beyond a clinical setting into the everyday environment. At the same time, the volunteers providing this service are given the opportunity to “give back” and strengthen their own recovery and growth by supporting others.
