Individual Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in the Scott Mission!

Our volunteers play a big role in many of our ministries, and are vital to the meaningful impact we have in transforming lives within our community.

Please note that there is a process to becoming an individual volunteer.
This includes:

  • Reviewing your application
  • Conducting an interview
  • Reviewing references (and, where applicable, a criminal reference)
  • Providing you with an orientation.
  • The length of time varies depending on the season and the volume of applications that are submitted.

Volunteer placements are subject to availability and we will follow-up where needs match.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this process but are confident that, once on board, you will have a fulfilling volunteer experience with us.
