Volunteer Application Process
You can expect the volunteer application process to look like this:
Every volunteer must complete a Volunteer Application Form to begin the process
Once you have submitted an application, we will schedule a meeting to discuss possible volunteer roles
If a position is available, volunteers will receive a letter that describes their volunteer commitment and role
Volunteers must consent to our Volunteer Expectations; minors are required to have a parent sign, too
Volunteers ages 17 and older are required to complete a background check prior to volunteering; start date is pending results
Volunteers receive a formal orientation and get started!
Eligible teenage volunteers ages 13-16 may earn Service Learning Hours for their time. Please let us know if you'd like to become a volunteer!
