As OneMama enters our tenth year as an organization providing services to the neediest women, children, and families around the globe, we are looking to engage people who are looking to find purpose and joy in their lives, and people looking to create social impact here at home through volunteering and becoming a member of the OneMama Family.
“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” - H. Jackson Brown Jr.
As the political and economical environment shifts the need to keep OneMama’s doors open increases day by day and we are always looking to create new options for OneMama family members. Opportunities where they can volunteer daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly. We have opportunities that can be focused on your interest and skills. Some are solitary and social, some are team building and some are digital, yet all help build leadership skills and create impact around the world.

OneMama founder and CEO, Siobhan Neilland, takes this very seriously and talks to every volunteer to make sure they are excited and engaged in their volunteering positions.
Being of service gives you back more than you can ever imagine. Studies have even shown that volunteering makes people happier giving their lives more fun and meaning.

Once a year, we look for volunteers to come to the United Nations and NY Fashion Week in New York City. This opportunity requires an interview and application process.
Every year Siobhan goes to Uganda to work on the ground at the OneMama Clinic. Each trip, she hand picks volunteers and program development volunteers to come and assist with programs and funding for the clinic on the ground for six weeks. This also requires an intensive application process. (Limited number of people accepted)
