We provide a wide range of community service and volunteer hours as well as internship opportunities. As part of our objective to enhance workforce development, and as a way to show our appreciation for those that donate their valuable time, we provide financial support for various educational and training opportunities.
In addition to providing free prevention education through presentations, events, and resource referrals, MADAC also offers partial payment (up to $30.00 per training) towards prevention education opportunities for anyone wishing to further their prevention knowledge or pursue Certified Prevention Specialist (CPS) Certification through the State of New Hampshire. For more information on prevention education and becoming a CPS, please visit The NH Prevention Certification Board website.
As an intern or volunteer, you will get valuable experience in the field of drug misuse and alcohol prevention. All levels of involvement are appreciated.*
