There are many volunteer opportunities available in the Endless Mountains Heritage Region, from site preparation for and assistance with events, coalition and distribution of promotional materials, follow-up calls for membership drives and application rounds, and maintenance of project partner sites.
The Endless Mountains Heritage Alliance (EMHA), which manages the Endless Mountains Heritage Region (EMHR), has been protecting and enhancing historic, natural and recreational assets to revitalize communities in Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna, and Wyoming counties since 1988.
Registered volunteers receive advance notice of all EMHA-sponsored activities such as Farm-to-Table events, Susquehanna River sojourns, special presentations and Heritage Region workshops on topics such as grant writing and project development.
Via periodic newsletters, email links to breaking news, and an opportunity to join EMHA at the annual dinner meeting in October, volunteers can stay in touch with the organization without a substantial investment of time.
Volunteer contributions can be recorded and documented to help volunteers fulfill credits toward educational endeavors and civic duties, and for use on resumes and job applications.
Within a short time, many volunteers find themselves wanting to be more involved in the EMHR after gaining a better perspective of the contributions the EMHA makes to the Region and its potential for further development of heritage resources.
A logical next step could Associate Membership, which provides a path to a more active role within the EMHR as a member of one of several vital committees that advance EMHA's agenda. Volunteers and Associate Members are considered invaluable assets by the EMHA.
The EMHA welcomes any and all support from community members that will help us fulfill our mission to make the Region a better place to live and visit.
