Formerly the League for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and the EAR Foundation


Volunteers at Bridges come from all walks of life and contribute their time and talents in a variety of ways. Whether they work with the youth in the after school program, help with office tasks, man the front desk, serve on a committee or help with special events, or help fundraise to provide client services, volunteers make a large impact at Bridges.

By working with the Deaf and hard of hearing communities, Bridges’s volunteers have the opportunity to work hands-on, improving their American Sign Language (ASL) skills. Although ASL is not required for Bridges’s volunteer positions, ASL skills are a plus. Either way volunteers must be open and willing to learn!

Bridges is always looking for volunteers to help achieve its mission. For more information, please call 615-248-8828 (V/TTY) or 615-290-5147 (VP) or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
