Volunteer with Norwalk Health Department

If you would like to expand your knowledge of public health, give back to your community, and interact with a new and exciting group of people, the Norwalk Health Department is perfect for you! There are two ways to get involved:

Emergency Response Team

  • Norwalk Health Department Emergency Response Team (ERT) is a longer-term volunteer position and assists in responding to public health emergencies and with local programs. Responsibilities could include transporting and distributing vital medicines in a health emergency. ERT also educates the public on health preparedness and emergencies. The Health Department provides all necessary training, so a medical background is not required. 
  • If interested, contact Donna M. Schlegel, ERT Volunteer Coordinator, at dschlegel@norwalkct.org or (203) 854-7979.

Internships and General Volunteer Opportunities 

  • Another shorter option includes internships available to students looking for valuable experience and a launch pad for their career, mid-career professionals looking to further educate themselves on public health, or retired persons looking to extend their community outreach. 
  • If interested, contact Theresa Argondezzi, Health Educator, at targondezzi@norwalkct.org or (203) 854-7977.
